another problem with the drone war

Obama has been proud of the fact that he is taking out lots of terrorists with drones and that he personally picks the targets. He has been criticized for this on the basis that what he is doing is basically high-tech assassination.

However another problem is that when you just kill all of the terrorists you know about: you can't ask them questions about all their little terrorist friends. I wonder if George Bush's policy of capturing and questioning terrorists would have alerted the US for the embassy attacks yesterday so they could be better prepared.
