Why Kenya?

Perhaps because drones have been successfully used to stop poaching of elephants and rhinos in their national parks:

Kenya is to deploy drones in all of its 52 national parks and reserves in a bid to monitor and stop the poaching of elephants and rhinos.

The move by the government follows a successful pilot project in major protected wildlife area, that saw drones reduce poaching by up to 96%.

Americans are woefully ignorant about this issue … They still don’t realize that drone bombings create more terrorists than they kill.

And as the Washington Post notes, Americans are stunningly apathetic:

We’re not kidding. Americans really, really don’t care about foreign policy right now – especially when they don’t have to worry about losing American lives abroad.
