Before anyone starts to throw stones, this is a very hard to understand issue. Perhaps we should have known if Hostages had been there before the Drone strike, but that is one of the advantages of Drone strikes, we do not have to put a lot of human resources at risk. This is also the biggest disadvantage of Drone strikes, we do not have all the facts of what is going on, on the ground. This no or limited risk policy of sending in Drones, or even air strikes from manned aircraft, has always had consequences. Some of our deaths recorded as friendly fire, have always included people killed in bombings, it has happen from the beginning of bombing wars. And will always continue I am sure.
