Newly leaked government documents have provided an unprecedented window into the secret U.S. drone assassination program across the globe. In "The Drone Papers," The Intercept reveals drone strikes have resulted from unreliable intelligence, stemming in large part from electronic communications data, or "signals intelligence," that officials acknowledge is insufficient. The documents also undermine government claims that the drone strikes have been precise. In Afghanistan, strikes on 35 direct targets killed at least 219 other people. Among other revelations, they also suggest the strikes have hurt intelligence gathering and that unknown male victims have been labeled as "enemies killed in action" unless evidence later proves otherwise. The documents were leaked to The Intercept by an unnamed U.S. intelligence source.

Is Afghanistan where they train the pilots? They could have leveled it by now and it wouldn't be reported in the media.

You know why they didn't use magic carpets and used American designed planes to run into American towers on 9/11?  Magic carpets just weren't going to be destructive enough.
