John Oliver “There is something strange about the fact that we launched deadly drone strikes in two sovereign nations that almost no one here heard about.  But then again, why would it make the news?  We use drones all the time.  Hard numbers are very difficult to come by for reasons that we’ll get into but by one estimate, the Obama administration we’ve launched eight times the number of drone strikes than his predecessor.  And, while they’ve declined a bit recently, drone strikes will be as much of a characteristic of the Obama presidency as Obamacare or receiving racist e-mail forwards from distant relatives.”
