The Obama administration has in turn been secretive about its use of targeted drone strikes, boasted about the program's success, and fended off critics who say the strikes are killing and injuring too many civilians. A New York Times story published Tuesday has the administration's human rights critics buzzing again. A key revelation comes near the end of the article, written by Jo Becker and Scott Shane, under the heading, "'They Must All Be Militants.'"Obama, Becker and Shane write, was angry when informed that the first drone strike after he took office had killed innocent Pakistanis. But one of the measures the administration embraced to prevent future innocent casualties was to embrace a method of counting combatants that would rope in more innocents.

*sorry for the weird links.. Adding threads on a tablet and something keeps messing up!?*

So, as we've been seeing recently, anyone can be designated a terrorist!
And it doesnt matter who you are!
You could be 17, or american : www.abovetopsecret.com...
An occupier : www.abovetopsecret.com...
Even a little girl, just because you may be beside a terrorist: www.abovetopsecret.com...

So?! Imagine you are walking down the street and BAM, you get droned cause you were in the vicinity of a 'terrorist'!?! Wtf! This is coming soon to the streets of America folks, so just be safe, dont walk near any terrorists....

Thoughts?,

Is that how they'll explain it the first time they arm the drones over the US, and a terrorist is targeted, and half your neighbourhood gets taken out.

You SURE? Experience of Airport security leads me to doubt that Toddlers would be exempt.

I don’t believe a word of this for the simple reason that it seems almost every week just now I am hearing about the civilian collateral damage caused by these drone strikes, if it was the case that standing near a terrorist made you a terrorist this would surely not be the case.

Some critical thinking is called for.

You do understand they are using this excuse to justify civilian deaths right?!

This is so that when they kill civilians within the area, they can call them militants cause they were in the vicinity of a 'terrorist'.. its a BS justification... not everyone standing within a strike zone of a so called 'terrorist' agrees with his/her views of the world. yet, they are labelled militants and are ok to kill because they were nearby.. you can;t tell me thats a load of crap

In that case why do I read so much about civilian deaths, why am I not reading more about “terrorist” deaths?
