DRONE WATCH: World Opinion Opposes Drones

By Duane Shank 06-14-2012 | Series:

According to a new Pew Research Center global survey:

"The Obama administration's increasing use of unmanned drone strikes to kill terror suspects is widely opposed around the world.  … In 17 out of 21 countries surveyed, more than half of the people disapproved of U.S. drone attacks targeting extremist leaders and groups in nations such as Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia."

The major exception? “… in the United States, a majority, or 62 percent, approved the drone campaign.”
