The "War on Terror" violates civil liberties and disrespects due process of law.
Government agencies should not be substituting human intelligence for metadata because that only increases the chance for human errors. The drone program is already a violation of due process but this is basically the government shooting from the hip. I understand that the activities of spy agencies in the modern world is essential for national security but the amount of civilian deaths on the hands of the US government is disgraceful. Disregarding human life is not collateral damage, it’s collateral murder.
