I hate that innocents die in these strikes. And yes, more terrorists are created because of these drone strikes. Al-Quaeda is still dangerous but no longer a credible threat on the scale of 9/11. The main reason for this is the decimation of their leadership and militant cells through drone strikes. It's war, innocent people get killed.
IMHO, to achieved that outcome, those drone strikes and the resulting collateral damage is just part of the tragedy of war.
I'm sorry but this simply isn't true. We are no safer now than we were on 9-11and drone strikes have certainly created more enemies.
