US officials have strongly rejected allegations in an independent UK study that a covert drone war in Pakistan has killed large numbers of civilians, saying the numbers are "way off the mark".
On Friday, US officials criticised the London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism report's finding that there had been many more CIA attacks on alleged al-Qaeda and Taliban targets and far more civilian deaths than previously reported.
The report said that bombing raids by unmanned aircraft had killed up to 168 children in Pakistan over the last seven years.
168 or 100 or 50 children dead is disgusting, and you may think that verifying the exact number is doing justice to the dead, but it all it does is prove you're unwilling to deal with us killing little boys and little girls who were probably in a school, learning in English.
You look at the horrors in Norway, and see innocence and youth stripped away, and you don't now? These are kids who probably never got to experience the pains of and joys of an innocuous little crush. # arguing over numbers.
