In a karmic turn of events, 2 US soldiers were killed by their own Drones last week in Afghanistan. I guess this kinda proves what we have been saying all along that you can’t tell what you are targetting.
Interesting that this was not widely reported in the press.
Normally the Drones just kill civilian children and the occasional terrorist/freedom fighter.
Here is the story:
Two American servicemen were killed in Afghanistan last week in what is believed to be the first case of friendly fire deaths involving a Predator drone. The pair were killed by a Hellfire missile after Marines under fire called in a strike, military officials tell NBC.The Marines were viewing video from the drone and apparently mistook reinforcements moving toward them on foot for the enemy, officials say. The US military is investigating the incident.
