Mccain's Bomb

The McCain campaign's line of the day is that Barack Obama "wants to take us back to the bad old days of going after terrorists with prosecutors rather than predators." But Obama did propose going after terrorists, which prompted McCain to accuse him of having "once suggested bombing our ally, Pakistan."

So is going after terrorists with predators a good idea, or the reckless fantasy of a foreign policy naif?
