The U.S. Military Invented a Medal for Drone "Pilots"?!?

The U.S. Military Invented a Medal for Drone "Pilots"?!? | Alternet: "The Distinguished Warfare Medal will recognize drone pilots for their “extraordinary achievements that directly impact on combat operations, but do not involve acts of valor or physical risks that combat entails.”
In other words, what Glenn Greenwald  once described as “sitting safely ensconced in a bunker on U.S. soil and launching bombs with a video joystick at human beings thousands of miles away” is now considered an “extraordinary achievement.”"
