IMAGINE IT WAS BUSH DOING THIS: "The Obama administration is assembling a constellation of secret drone bases for counterterrorism operations in the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula as part of a newly aggressive campaign to attack al-Qaeda affiliates in Somalia and Yemen, U.S. officials said."

I'm sure you know that these drones carry missiles with which the US can kill suspected terrorists. So let me get this straight: closing up someone in Gitmo is an unspeakable act of cruelness, breaching the most basic human rights, but blowing up without trial someone suspected of being a terrorist is fine and dandy?
