President’s right on drones


President Obama is right on drones.

The president should have the right to use drones on drug traffickers, criminals like Chris Dorner who go on the run after killing people then kill two more law enforcement officers trying to apprehend him or people involved in car chases who end up killing other people while fleeing the police.

This would end drawn out trials and years of endless appeals. What if a known terrorist had just stolen a small airplane and was on his way to crash it into a building, for example.

These are just a few examples where drone strikes would be OK.

Note, I did not vote for Mr. Obama and do not support his big government liberal policies, but I think the president is right on the drone issue.
