Seems like the duty to be certain should always be on the drone operator. Better to let a guilty person go free than kill children and the people who take care of them.

The kill call is not on the drone operator. But I’m sure he or she is suffering from this.

Depends on the question. If the admin had ordered a F117 strike the result would have been the same. Drone strikes have their place.

Unimaginable and AVOIDABLE. And it only took THREE weeks for them to acknowledge it.
