    Although many questions arise if the drones are used domestically, I can’t remember any article of the Constitution that would prohibit their use in a foreign conflict.

    “any article of the Constitution that would prohibit their use”

    The issue in question, I believe, is Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution, which strictly defines “Treason”; states the proof necessary for conviction; and restricts to Congress the determination of the punishment.

    “prohibit their use in a foreign conflict.”


    They’re just another weapon. The average American jet fighter is much more lethal and carries enormous amounts of more deadly ordinance…

    Yes, as Rachel Maddow pointed out, there’s nothing different about using drones than using manned aircraft, it’s the same Hellfire missiles. What makes it potentially unconstitutional is the fact that we’re killing people, outside of a declared war zone, without trial. So this cartoonist missed the point, although there is a point to be made.

    Obama is just following Bush’s lead.

    Hey Dana, where were you 10 years ago when Bush started this? Oh, that’s right. You were excusing Bush’s illegal wiretapping.

    Oh, silly Tigger! Obama won’t shut it off. He’ll just monitor it for threats. You’re probably ok, but Howgee & ConserveGov are off to Gitmo.

    Of course, once a Republican gets back in the White House, we’re both off to Gitmo, too.

    Given the number of “terrorists” coming from around the world, will SEALs now have to ask for passports to avoid shooting “Americans” in the field?


    As to domestic use of drones, it’s primarily been the “conservatives”, like along the borders, calling for increased use of drones.
