I find it difficult to understand the angst over killing terrorists overseas.

Ah, so I guess it will be OK if some government official decided that _you_ are a terrorist and sent a drone to kill _you_ once you are overseas ?
After all it will be just killing terrorists overseas, right?

But is killing many more inocent people than terroist. This is bound to bring more hate toward us than before. This also can lead to other countries developing drones which they can use against us as they consider the US to be terroist. Obama should be concerned les one of these countries may target the WH. The country is now in a non stop war that never ends.

If Bush had been doing it, or Reagan, without any congressional oversight, would it bother you? Had the press ignored the story and not held anyone accountable when innocents are "collateral damage"?

Bush did it-Reagan sent fighter jets and bombers.

Do you have any difficulty with the idea the the American president can just decide that an American must die and it happens?

It is not the killing of terrorists that causes us "angst" - it is the ability of one man to have _anyone_ killed with a simple slash of the auto-pen.

In actual fact, King George III did not have this kind of power - he at least had to get the approval of a star chamber to have an enemy assassinated.

Who would have guessed that one of the most warmongering presidents would be a liberal Democrat who was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize? Obama has gotten away with a secret escalating drone war because the left and their fifth column in the media have mostly turned a blind eye, just like they have with Obama's expanded ground war in Afghanistan, not wanting to criticize a fellow leftist in power. Obama is not the pacifist he pretends to be. The executive branch's escalating drone strike program has been taking place in secret now for over 10 years, all ostensibly justified...
