Drones- April and May 2015

White House officials and Barack Obama have admitted to not knowing who the unmanned  drone was targeting when they killed those two civilians. It’s because usually drones target people who fit a profile, also known as a signature strike. People who “look like terrorists” are killed indiscriminately all of the time. I personally can’t even comprehend the terror people must face because of the fear of drones.

Despite all of the training and practice of weaseling their way out of potentially problematic situations, the presidency can’t squirm out of this one.
