I would hate for the death of those hostages to be used as fodder for those on the left and right who have been opposing drone strikes. It plays into the hands of our enemies who would love for us to cease the drone strikes. They purposely shield themselves with civilians. I'm guessing that's what they did in this case. Similar mistakes have been made even with manned aircraft. This is an unfortunate part of warfare. Also it should occur to people that these western hostages are in these countries in the first place because they sympathize with Muslims and hate America.
If Rand Paul and like-minded people have a plan to stop al Qaeda, Isis and so forth without the use of military force, I'd like to hear it. Otherwise they continue to strike at us unimpeded. Jihadists count on the fact that the west has no stomach for a fight.
