letters | OBAMA’S LICENSE TO KILL?

How will we feel when armed drones attack US?

JOHN E. Sununu is on target. (“For Obama, a license to kill,” Op-ed, Feb. 19) Missing from the drone discussion is how as a result of this policy the US will reap the whirlwind. These stealthy, silent weapons, tiny and lethal, find and hover over remote targets to kill their prey. How will we react when these weapons fly over Washington and bomb our own leaders? There is no serious defense. Drones are tomorrow’s poison, from which we soon will drink.

Our zeal to render enemies supine, combined with exquisite disregard for the Constitution, creates a fearsome tomorrow.
