Pretty sure Obama is busy killing Al Qaeda wherever they are - Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen.

I think that pales in comparison to invading and occupying a country based solely upon lies and false pretenses because the president was mad at the guy who was so mean to his daddy.

Yep, Obama has killed dozens of innocents - which is pretty much a rounding error in comparison to the previous occupier of the Oval Office.

So, you think the drone strikes are good and we should keep doing them?

Do you want to attack Al Qaeda?

If Yes, then either get ready for ground wars in Yemen and Pakistan or get used to drones.

"Attack Al Qaeda"... sure, but that's a little different from attacking people who we think have a chance of possibly being associated with Al Qaeda, which is (AFAIK) what we're doing. Our current strategy with drones seems to be a pretty effective at upsetting Pakistani's, and that's all you or I can say with any degree of certainty unless you've got special access to intelligence community data.
