UN opens probe into drone strikes

The question is whether such strikes violate international human rights laws.  I say, if they don't, then international human rights laws aren't worth anything.  What the UN can (and is willing to) do to stop the US from engaging in drone strikes is less clear, but probably hovers somewhere between "nothing" and "send a firm letter of protest."

Note: Just because it violates international human rights laws does not mean I am opposed to all drone strikes.  From the accounts I've read, though, I think I would be a bit less casual about it.
