FAA to Americans: Hey, Drones Can Be Dangerous!

Just in time for Christmas, the Federal Aviation Administration releases a new video telling Americans how to “stay off the naughty list” with the drones they receive as presents this month.

“Don’t be careless or reckless; you could be fined if you endanger people or other aircraft.”

Does that apply to the guy whose policy involves flying drones that endanger people in other countries?

Maybe drone strikes are a genuinely irreplaceable tool in the U.S. effort against terror groups that target Americans. But it’s pretty remarkable how much public and Congressional outrage we’ve seen over water-boarding al-Qaeda terrorists, compared to the amount of outrage we’ve seen over the number of children killed in drone strikes, even if the numbers are on the low end of the estimate.
