#1 Our dronezaps are generally on rural compounds or vehicles on open roads; this seems to have been in the heart of town, where the risk of collateral damage is a lot higher. Did we have a high-value target or have all the targets moved to human-shielded locations now?

#2 Obama's desperate to disengage. Can't do that with ramped up Taliban activity, so he's become more aggressive with the zaps, I would guess.

#4 I would totally stop confirming drone hits.
I would keep putting a story that Taliban munitions mishandling blew it up.
Oh and I'd make sure we weren't THAT careful about "civilians" nearby. pour encourager les autres
