Glenn Greenwald points again to the NYT article that explores (in the Times typically euphemistic, mealy-mouth way) the White House drone murder program. Any military aged male, what those ages are is undefined though I wouldn't doubt it's eight to eighty, is now considered a 'militant' and goes on the scoreboard as one. Women and children, who that White House claims have never been killed must be just too small to count.

While strafing Vietnamese from the air, a helicopter gunner in Full Metal Jacket was asked, "How can you shoot women, children?", he answered, "It's easy, you just don't lead them so far. Ha, ha ha.". We can see why Pres. Drone recently chastised Americans for not loving Vietnam vets sufficiently, their excesses were the same as his.
