U.S. drones have killed 1000 civilians, including 200 children in Pakistan

"The U.S. drone program has killed hundreds of civilians in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan and more. Pakistan is the site of more U.S. drone strikes than any other country. The Obama administration has carried out more than 370 drone attacks in Pakistan, killing as many as 1,000 civilians, including up to 200 children, according to data collected by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism. The exact number of civilians killed is unknown, because the U.S. is very secretive about its program, and because it essentially redefines militant to mean any man of military age in a targeted area."
