Terrorism With a Bigger Budget: Video By Defiance Freedom In the last four years, the use of unmanned drones to engage in so-called ?targeted killing? has escalated dramatically. In Pakistan alone, US drone strikes have increased five fold during the Obama administration, according to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, which tracks US drone strikes . Drones have become the go-to weapon in the United State?s ?War on Terror?. The drone war?s apparent ?successes? are celebrated by administration officials on a regular basis, often while avoiding the more disturbing details, such as the under-accounted for civilian death toll, the violation of international and humanitarian laws, the counter-productivity of drone warfare, and the lasting effects of such blatant disregard for human life.
