The problem is twofold:

1. We are fighting a problem, in the case of Islamist terrorism, which feeds off the collateral damage of our strikes. The same cannot be said in traditional warfare, where the mission is to simply dismantle and destroy as much of your opposing military as possible until they cry uncle.

2. Is there a conceivable person on a presidential ticket since the turn of the century that you could not trust with this power?

George Bush
Dick Cheney
Al Gore
Joe Lieberman
John Kerry
John Edwards
John McCain
Sarah Palin
Barack Obama
Joe Biden
Mitt Romney
Paul Ryan

You'd trust every single one of these people with unlimited, unaccountable drone power?
