Freedom of speech
means what exactly? We often hear about freedom of speech being a cornerstone of democracy but how does it work in practice? "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." is the rallying cry. When we hear a controversial point of view or one we don't agree with it is an opportunity to examine it and/or challenge it, censoring or ignoring is not a democratic response.
Drones are used extensively in the tribal areas of Pakistan, Obama says that there has been very little collateral damage when he talks about it at all. A lawyer representing 80 civilians killed by US drones was denied entry to the US where he was due to attend a civil rights gathering. Partial freedom is an oxymoron.
