If there is a law against it, then I ask why? When was this law passed and you passed it? The drone was unarmed anyway so could take no action.

It's from the Geneva Convention and the USSC ruled that enemy combatants are protected under those rules. The person who would have authorized the strike would have been court marshaled and convicted because it is clearly noted in the rules of engagement about targeting ceremonial events including funerals.
