During his time in office, President Barack Obama received much credit for drawing down American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, but less attention was paid to his administration's embrace of armed drones.
His expansion of covert drone strikes went far beyond that of former President George W. Bush, and has since blurred the line between warfare and assassination. The classified processes used by the White House for approving these remote killings in foreign countries – countries with which the U.S. is not officially at war – has people questioning not only the Obama administration's tactics, but also the collateral damage of civilian casualties left in its wake.
