#1 Yup, the terrorists are much diminished, not gone, but thinned out.
Few terrorists, fewer misses, as well the fakes are dead too.
I remember they pulled a child out of the freezer regularly, and screamed THE AMERICANS KILLED THIS INNOCENT CHILD for a while there.

#2 He must have contracted the reporting to the OMB. An upward revision will no doubt be forthcoming on a Friday afternoon, a week or two from now. UN rapporteurs will not be mocked.

#3 "...only 3 percent, or 67 people, were civilians"

That's about a month's worth in Chicago.

#4 He must have contracted the reporting to the OMB.

Mr. Mead's comments are based the NYT's article, whose numbers were pulled from Pakistan's report.

I used Mr. Mead's comments instead of the NYT's for the reason I highlighted at the beginning of the article.

#5 Ya mean Que Surpise???

Pakland once again admits sthat the overwhelming majority or bulk of personages killed or injured by drones are - wait for it - de facto Militants = Bad Boyz, + that the drones are doing what they're supposed to be doing, i.e. kill Militants, albeit not widout some "non/
imperfect" occurrence of collateral civilian casualties whom were likely relatives or associates of the deceased, + also being deliber used as "human shields" by same.
