"Rescuers treating the casualties are also being killed and wounded by second drone strikes, the authors say."
Ambulances and Paramedics
"President Barack Obama has said those targeted are "on a list of active terrorists". "
Americans and Children are on this list.
"A controversial aspect of the US policy is that drone attacks are carried out, not by the military, but by the Central Intelligence Agency.
Pakistan is not a zone of armed conflict
, unlike neighbouring Afghanistan."
NOT BY THE MILITARY.
"US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta has defended the policy, saying that the US will continue to defend itself.
Pakistan is a state of America now ? I suppose so considering American leaders seem to think Israel is a State and not a sovereign nation.
"Earlier this year President Barack Obama insisted the strategy was "kept on a very tight leash" and that without the drones, the US would have had to

Magical second edit to say : I have friends from Pakistan, libya, Syria and Iran
Pakistan: alot of civilian deaths due to drone strikes
Libya : Mercenaries where used. Western mercenaries their skin color kind of gives that away.
Syria : More Mercenaries
Iran: if they are developing nuclear weapons its only because everyone around them has them too and they are afraid and keep getting sanctioned by
other nations claiming to be Iran's Opponents namely Israel. My Iranian friend is basically stating the consensus of the Civilians there are afraid
they will be nuked by Israel any day now.
