US President Barack Obama has defended the drone attacks as effective, legal and just. In a major foreign policy speech, the President said that the drone have been a major tool for the US war on terror. This speech comes after the US AG, Eric Holder admitted that the drones have in previous occasions killed American citizens. The drones have also claimed the lives of innocent children and women in Pakistan and Yemen. Although the US claim that the drones target specific individuals, there is no doubt that many other civilians fall prey into the aftermath of the attacks.
