Parenthetical Aside of the Day

In a post that went up last week, about deaths caused by the CIA’s Predator drone bombing campaign, this useful reminder from Charli Carpenter:

(Never mind the fact that as civilians, CIA agents are not entitled to wage war and would have to be considered ‘unlawful combatants’ if brought to justice.)

Of course, she's a university professor, so by definition, she's rooting for the terrorists.

P.S.  Did you know that you can keep your body count of those accidentally killed by high explosives dropped from robot airplanes Collateral Damage™ down if you simply redefine all males over 13 as non-civilians?
