A New Pentagon Medal to Honor Drone Jockeys and Computer Hackers

Mr. Panetta said the new medal would be reserved for those who greatly assisted the war effort by piloting Predator or Reaper drones from a remote trailer, often back in the United States, or by an assignment to devise computer defenses or create poisonous digital code to attack an adversary’s network.

Not exactly surprising. The war machine always needs incentives and moral boosters for their hired hands.

Extra points towards the medal by eliminating an American and their children?

Is collateral damage a plus or minus?
