It is absolutely illegal for the CIA terrorists to be flying drones in this or any war. CIA agents, operatives and assets are all illegal entities everywhere in our world including the USA. The CIA flying drone weapons in any war is illegal and makes the CIA terrorists flying drones illegal combatants.
The US news doesn't like to talk about the CIA flying drones. The CIA is not mentioned when the media makes claims that they are killing militants. The fact of the matter is that many villagers of Afghanistan have run to the outer territories of Pakistan out of fear and also because some of their villages have been razed to the ground by incessant US bombing. For the most part these people being killed are ordinary people who have fled the US killing in their home country of Afghanistan and the innocent people of Pakistan living in the tribal areas trying to live their lives as best they can.
Also, remote drones are being flown from thousands of miles away in Creech Air Force Base in Nevada about 30 miles south of `Sin City`sometimes known as Las Vegas. These `video`game enthusiasts kill innocent people in Pakistan and Afghanistan from video game-like devices in air conditioned trailers in a very serial manner and then go to bed safe and sound far away from the people wretchedly holding their dead with little idea what is going on.
It is also interesting to note that Obama likes the drone idea and plans on making lots more.
