according to one one the participants. the reason US administration and Specially CIA is able to lie to people about the reality of Drone war is that there are no US casualties so there is no public outcry, no reaction
and the US/ Western public is pretty much sedated with what the already Debriefed Media tells them.
its appalling that everyone within the mile radius of the intended target is considered a "potential hostile" if that person happens to be a male. but there is no rule that if there are women and children around then the strike will be called off
except a handful of few AQ or Taliban names. all the drone strikes have the claims about nameless militants or AQ leaders killed. there is no way to verify the claim and no one finds the need to do so because the US Administrations words are backed up by the US mainstream media whose leadership forms the part of the American national security meetings.
it is this indifference or ignorance of the rest of the world that CIA is able to claim that there are no or negligible civilian casualties, although the facts tell a different story.
there is a need to inform the Western world about the reality of war and see how wrong this drone war is and how they are being lied to by their government. everything they stand for is being nullified and there is a spawn of freelance bloggers and web commentators from neighbouring India who have their own axes to grind when it comes to Pakistan. they make it their national duty to sabotage any report or any story that shows the people of FATA as the victims.
the result is that the western population pretty much buys the idea that drone strikes are a good idea to win this war ignoring the fact that every strike is actually creating more anti American people who might actually hate and suffered at the hands of Al Qaeda and Taliban.
