Several missle strikes have been loosely attributed to US forces since President Obama took office:
On January 23, CBS reports 18 “people” were killed in 2 strikes “at least 5 of which were foreign militants”,
On January 29th, AFP reports 12 “suspected militants” were killed, and
On February 14, AP reports 17 “militants” were killed.
During the Bush administration, whenever one of these “missle strikes” was attributed to US forces, the article either led with a civilian death count, or got to it quickly. It is clear to me that our missle strikes are remarkably more accurate now. That is encouraging.
