I recall W got the war criminal tag for the "enhanced interrogations" rather than the drones - I think the torture actually has ceased but I do not have the security clearance to verify that guess

As far as Obama getting into remote control murders, I recall he developed a taste for drones after he won the Nobel Peace Prize for not being W - since I believe you cannot repeat as Nobel Peace Prize champ maybe he figured since that was off his bucket list he did not have to worry about droning hurting his chances to win that prize

And I think he got the "hero" tag by some for happening to be POTUS when Osama was killed, something that his predecessor botched and then claimed did not matter
