I will conclude my paper by claiming that the current drone policy of the U.S. government is illegitimate, counterproductive, and inhumane while drones itself are extremely important against terrorist organizations. In other words, I will argue that by reforming some aspects of the drone policy and by using it in accordance to the international law, drones are important for the U.S. security. Success & Importance Despite the fact that drones became enormously popular after September 11 attacks during the Bush administration, its usage against Al-Qaeda and Taliban has sextupled since Barack Obama’s inauguration as the president of the United States in 2009. Although the exact amount of victims is unknown due to confidentiality from the CIA and the U.S. government, The Bureau of Investigative Journalism (TBIJ) has ga... ... middle of paper ... ..., 30(2), 409-447.

Umbreen Javaid and Qamar Fatima said that terrorism has always been around; just in the past, it happened due to local issues handled by small groups (2). But the attacks on the Twin Towers were huge, many people lost their lives or loved ones. What was the purpose of sacrificing so many people’s lives?

On August 2nd to the 4th, during the conflict at Tonkin Gulf the U.S. deployed highly classified UAVs into combat the Vietnam War in 1964. When pictures were shown of destroyed drones by Wide World Photos, the official U.S. response was “no comment” (Garome 64). With a technology that had been attempted for 60 years and the U.S. being the first to use them under military control, Why is this breakthrough in technology not shown with the same pride as the first moon landing or the first atomic bomb? In this exposition we shall explore the national and international uses of U.S Drones and uncover why, as a country, we don’t acknowledge the threat this new technology has on the stability of our nation. While we have been using drones since 1964, as the technology becomes more advanced the way we used this new technology became more advanced.
Terrorists took control over total of four air planes. Two of the air planes destroyed the world trade center; one airplane flew into the Pentagon, and the other one dropped down on Pennsylvania. The tragedy was all over the news, media. People all around the world are still talking about the event until today; the day which we now call 911. The terrorist attack on the United States created a huge alarm all over the world because back in 2001 the security was somehow not as protective as now.
