Re "CIA nominee needs to justify drone campaign" (Editorials, Feb. 7): Thank you for bringing to light the downside of the U.S. drone program. I believe the U.S. would have more long-term success in the Middle East if we sent teachers, doctors and engineers.
Martin Luther King Jr. affirmed that if we all continue with "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth," we will all end up toothless and blind. Drone attacks will simply breed revenge.
