Why no outcry against drones?

Why isn’t there an outcry over the hundreds of civilians killed or seriously injured in U.S. drone attacks in Pakistan? Government sources launched more than 329 drone attacks in Pakistan between 2004 and 2013 – killing between 400 and 900 civilians, and seriously injuring more than 600 people. Secrecy surrounds the drones program, giving the U.S. administration a license to kill beyond the standards of international law.
The killing of innocent civilians and the resulting fear from targeted drone attacks are considered by many as acts of U.S. terrorism.
The Gospel way of acting justly and living non-violent, unconditional love is the only weapon that can defeat terrorism.
