Attack of the Drones: 160 children’s corpses

4 more people killed in a drone strike in Pakistan today.

From militants to mothers, Obama must love being complicit in the deaths of these people. Next time he, or any other US official, speaks in public, imagine a pile of 160 children’s corpses, casting a black shadow over the affair

A little bit from the wikipedia page:

Based on extensive research, the Bureau of Investigative Journalismfound that between 391 - 780 civilians were killed out of a total of between 1,658 and 2,597 and that 160 children are reported among the deaths. The Bureau also revealed that since President Obama took office at least 50 civilians were killed in follow-up strikes when they had gone to help victims. More than 20 civilians have also been attacked in deliberate strikes on funerals and mourners. Tactics that have been condemned by legal experts.
