White House spokesman Jay Carney has defended the continuous drone strikes as legal, ethical, wise and complying with US law and the Constitution. In other words, if the same strikes were conducted by any other country on the US soil, will they also be considered as legal, ethical, wise and constitutional? Or are they only people in the world allowed constitutionally to attack other nations?
