Repost: Drone Strikes in Pakistan   Leave a comment


Justin Elliot at ProPublica, via Juan Cole’s site, has an excellent article about CIA drone strikes in Pakistan. I take three things away from this article:

1) The Obama Administration has lied to reporters about how many civilians are being killed.

2) The fact that our only information about this program comes from anonymous administration leakers is disturbing. There’s no accountability for the claims that are made.

3) When the administration claims that it can be certain about who or what is beingĀ targeted, there’s good reason to suspect they’re either lying or simply wrong.
