Hard to believe, but our friends over at the Danger Room blog draw our attention to this interesting item: a Pakistani general who says the CIA’s Predator drone strikes raining down on his country for the past several years are doing some good. “It’s a reality that many of those being killed in these strikes are hardcore elements, a sizable number of them foreigners,” he says. “Yes, there are a few civilian casualties in such precision strikes, but a majority of those eliminated are terrorists, including foreign terrorist elements.” Wonder how much time he’s got left?
