Update On Drones

The recent filibuster by Rand Paul has raised the question (finally) about the ethical use of drones. Of course, it took a consideration of what it would be like to have them attacking people in this country to get our attention, but it has finally happened. Recent reports suggest that only 2% of those killed by the drones are militant leaders (even less than I had suspected) and as many as 881 civilians and 176 children have been killed as well. This is madness and cannot possibly be worth the carnage by any stretch of the ethical imagination.
