As the CIA cannot operate on American soil legally, it would be a good idea to limit armed drones to CIA control. The US Armed Forces already uses both armed and unarmed drones but should perhaps be prevented from using Armed ones over American territory except military bases (for training).

POLL DESCRIPTION
Writing in Proceedings magazine, Samuel Lacinski argues that U.S. miliary drones should be controlled by the military and not the CIA:
Doing so would allow a greater level of transparency as the military can report on its actions… military control is necessary not only to ensure the proper conduct of operators in the future but also to allow for a more robust effort to engage locals and provide a more positive narrative surrounding the campaign.
Do you agree?
