Civilian Casualties Ignite Outrage

Oct 1, 2012

Politicians and the news media keep posing the inane question: “why are the Muslim people so angry and rioting and attacking us?” Attacking us? Really?

A recent study, done at Stanford and New York University, found that 98% of drone strike casualties in Pakistan are civilians. Weddings, funerals and other large family gatherings have often come under attack by drones.

Is it any wonder that the study found that the large number of drone civilian casualties turns Pakistanis against the U.S.? Angrily against!
