Do we "need" a manned spy plane? Probably not. Safer for a variety of reasons, politically for sure.

I'm a pilot, I like the thought of some guy (or gal) at the controls of a high performance machine at the cutting edge of technology.

I believe the SR-71 offered some capabilities still not matched today, though.
