Reforming U.S. Drone Strike Policies

There are 19 comments on the www.cfr.org story from Jan 29, 2013, titled Reforming U.S. Drone Strike Policies. In it, www.cfr.org reports that:

Over the last ten years, drones have become a critical tool in the war against terrorist and militant organizations worldwide. Their advantages over other weapons and intelligence systems are well known. They can silently observe an individual, group, or location for hours on end, but take immediate action should a strike opportunity become available--all without putting a pilot at risk. This combination of capabilities is unique and has allowed the United States to decimate the leadership of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and disrupt the activities of many other militant groups.

Lamb testified under oath that funding had NOTHING to do with the Marines being pulled out of Benghazi and it's bad defenses. And it didn't. You are a Terrible liar. As is Obama and Susan Rice.

I would argue that the actions of the US Government has created this very situation. With the creation of Al Qaeda, our foreign policy, killing of innocent victims all over the middle east (1M innocent people in Iraq alone).

It is time for the American people to look at their "so called" representative government government and ask how they could have put the American people in this situation in the first place.

For every action, there is a equal or opposite reaction.

Let's look at Mali for instance. The US and France funded, armed, and bombed people during a Libyan civil war. The supporters of Ghadaffi that were not killed fled in Mali. Now Mali is in a civil war. But France is going to go in with the US and drop "love" bombs. Because that is the humanitarian thing to do.

And the response of the fighters that are being targeted? The respond that there will be Pay Back in the center of Paris.

This is coming from a person who voted for nobama in 08 no one knew anything about, 1 term senator, no military experience, sealed records, has blown billions in taxpayer money in vain attempts to have the taxpayers fund businesses,(hasn't worked anywhere else), middle east in flames, al queda building back up, economy much worse now then 08.....and then you voted for him again. Paul Ryan has more qualifications when he was in high school than BO had after college.

Understand actions have consequences, pinhead. barrack obama is the worst thing to ever happen to the Ameican people...nancy pelosi is a close second.

Answer the question billy boy. Why were thousands of Marines at embassies and consulates all over Europe, yet the left claims that "budget cuts by the GOP" caused none at Benghazi.

Shyte....that ranks right up there with Bush's ranch in Paraguay you people claimed he had and chemtrails!!

Who writes your stuff, anyway? And why would self proclaimed intelligent people fall for it?

Oh, and al didn't invent the internet either.

You're still an idiot. The 'lack of funding' brought up by progressives at Clinton's hearing was a red herring. We already know from prior testimony under oath that funding for security was not an issue.

Charlene Lamb, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Diplomatic Security, testimony at Benghazi oversight hearing:

Q:“Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which led you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?”

A:“No, sir.”

Actually I voted for Mrs. Clinton; but in the general election it was Obama or the Crazy guy with the annoying, insane, ignorant train wreck.

"...worst thing to ever happen to the Ameican people..."
And, you must have slept through Bush & Reagan.
