The cartoon, on its face, is funny. Mayor Bloomberg might even approve. The use of drones overseas without proper oversight is not funny. I hope hearings will result in drone strikes being held to a more stringent standard. Collateral damage should not be “acceptable”. The use of drones as a ‘causal’ method of watching/spying Americans on US soil is much more offensive to me. I can understand using drones for search and rescue operations, or in the case of the California man who is targeting police officers. I can not accept their use as a way to surreptitiously spy/investigate Americans who are just going about their daily business in hopes of finding an infraction. George Orwell’s “1984” is already too close to being realized with the Patriot Act and other ‘laws’ that have created the Cage of Freedom in which we are living.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSbc0JpxA8wRespectfully,C.
