President Obama knows how to defend America. In 2008, Obama publicly based the drone program, along with several other Bush era National Security measures taken after 9/11. However, after getting in office, he either changed his mind after hearing the intelligence briefings or he decided to expand this program because he knew the media would not hold him accountable for being against expanding the Drone program in 2008.
That being said, following the terror attack on the US since 9/11 last week, it baffles me that any American can be against continuing to kill terror leaders around the world who inspire these nuts like in Boston. We did not start this war. I know this is a tired analogy but would you be against targeted Drone strikes against Nazi leaders in WWII, or is the risk of civilian death too much for the progressive mind to fathom?
