When it comes to fighting the radical Islamic State in Iraq, the Obama administration has seemed less reliant on missile-firing drones than it has in the past. Experts say that one reason why the U.S. military hasn't used armed drones more widely in Iraq this time around may be because drones are no longer an effective weapon, given the size and scope of the Islamic State. Phillip Lohaus, a former analyst with the U.S. military in Iraq, told Mashable "The nature of the Islamic State has grown to such an extent that it’s no longer just pinpoint strikes that drones can take out. It requires more."
