Civilians killed by dronesPresident Barack Obama’s government said on Friday it inadvertently killed up to 116 civilians in strikes in countries where America is not at war, a major disclosure likely to inflame debate about targeted killings and use of drones.

Documents Show Pentagon Whitewash of U.S. Killing and Mutilation of Afghan Family in 2010

Gardez raid documentsMore than six years after a notorious night raid gone wrong by U.S. Special Operations Forces in Afghanistan, Pentagon documents shed new light on the event including the determination that mutilating the bodies of dead pregnant women was an “appropriate use of force,” according to a new report in the Intercept by Jeremy Scahill.

Scahill had previously written about the February 2010 night raid near Gardez in Paktia Province in his 2014 book, Dirty Wars.

“Please take a look at this material as to what we don’t know about WMD,” Rumsfeld wrote to Air Force General Richard Myers. “It is big.”

The report was an inventory of what U.S. intelligence knew—or more importantly didn’t know—about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. Its assessment was blunt: “We’ve struggled to estimate the unknowns. ... We range from 0% to about 75% knowledge on various aspects of their program.”
