I'd rather send in drones than people when we are talking about a definite strike, regardless of where it is. But back to the topic at hand: IMO it's a real slippery slope when we talk about using them for spying on American citizens...
I always knew you were up to no good Redhorse
...for those that are not up to no good...surveillance matters not, a strike is a different story.
I bolded the blue in your post. In response it: To know w high accuracly that someone/group intends to "strike" requires very good intelligence. Going back to 911, it doesn't look like our intelligence gathering abilities were sterling, I have no way of guaging how much that has improved. Going forward to Ft. Hood, PC prevents us from even hinting that someone might be a terrorist, or even a sympathizer when they make clear statements to that affect.
