For more than a decade, we’ve been getting somber Pentagon emails telling us the name, hometown and age of every U.S. troop killed in the war zones of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Noticed something new, at least to us, in Friday’s release from the International Security Assistance Force in Kabul detailing recent action in Afghanistan.

It reports on two enemy dead, which may be insignificant in the overall scheme of things.

But what’s interesting is that both men are named, and that each was killed in what ISAF called a “precision strike.”

Talk about having a bullet with your name on it.
