The Newsroom (HBO) on drones.

Fair warning I'm a bleeding heart liberal.

I like the show and think they do a very good job for the most part.
However the framing of the drone argument misses the largest reason why it is so wrong in my opinion.
Even if we did get the bad guy is it acceptable to kill 5 or 10 innocent people in the process?
If you got the FBI's 10 most wanted and killed their (U.S.) neighbors while doing it everyone would be outraged, but somehow brown people
on the other side of the world don't count. You can't lead the free world if you treat the rest of the world as if their lives matter less than our own.
