Has there ever been a British-led drone attack on a city in a friendly country that is not at war? General?
--I do not believe so, no.
Then how can we sanction it?
We have a situation here which could result in massive loss of life in the next 10 minutes.
--Then use those 10 minutes and get the Secretary's approval. That is my decision, General.
Are we clear to engage, yes or no? Come on, make a decision.
--With respect, ma'am, I don't make those decisions. I'm here to advise you on the law! The law is not here to get in your way, it is here to protect you, and to protect your target.
Sir, you must act now. You have two men about to embark on a suicide mission. You have number two, four, and five on the President's East Africa kill list in your sights, and you are putting the whole mission at risk because of one collateral damage issue?
