US Military War Criminals, Again

Even the military higher-ups seem to agree that Predator drone operators (who are military personnel in this case) are evil murderers.
The American military released a scathing report on Saturday on the deaths of 23 Afghan civilians, saying that “inaccurate and unprofessional” reporting by a team of Predator drone operators helped lead to an inadvertent airstrike this year on a group of innocent men, women and children.
The details are particularly heinous here, as the drone operators were clearly giving misinformation about the target to military helicopters, who sent missiles into a civilian convoy. The drone operators ignored or lied about the presence of women in the vehicles.
