  •  Thanks for this excellent diary about these (5+ / 0-)

    outrageous war crimes.

    DKos member Setrak publishes an AfPak diary almost every day (although he promised to stop a few days ago and did not) that glorify the drone strikes.  It's great to see the other side in a diary.

    The actual number of civilian casualties is probably even higher than reported here. Some people are literally blown to smithereens and never counted.

    A few weeks ago, and I can't remember where, there was a report that the U.S. Defense Department nearly always gives the casualties for every drone strike as "30."  They have no justification for that at all; they just pull the number out of their butts.
