As Greg Scoblete points out, the Obama administration has a curious policy regarding drone strikes: It “counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants . . . unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent.”
I am all for the drone program. But this inflation of body counts is nothing short of appalling, reminiscent of the kind of high level dishonesty that became infamous in Vietnam, and will do nothing whatsoever to enhance or further American national security objectives.
Obamaphile hacks in the old and new media will, of course, have absolutely nothing whatsoever to say about any of this.
