Under Obama, an emerging global apparatus for drone killing

Anything used for counter-terrorism ends up being used against organised crime, now that the latter is a matter of national security, not a matter of due process...so these will be used against drug cartels in Mexico, Colombia etc. Metropolitan Police already buying them for surveillance purposes, apparently [well a couple of UK newspapers say so.] Legal framework for use? Murky, to say the least. accountability? Transparency?

Are they vulnerable to a Stuxnet-type of worm?
