#1 "A report commissioned by legal lobby group Reprieve in September estimated that between 474 and 881 civilians were among 2,562 to 3,325 people killed by drones in Pakistan between June 2004 and September 2012."

Estimated? What estimation technique did they use, SWAG?

#4 As per DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS, Pak Perts + locals that the US Drone strikes were made agz both "good" + "bad" Taliban - in the case of Taliban leader MAULVI NAZIR, an alleged popular "good" Taliban whose death-by-US-Drone may now had put the entire Pak Govt-Taliban peace deal at risk, to includ also both Pak Army + National Integrity/Union - IOW, AT HIGH RISK OF DESTABILIZATION, DISINTEGRATION, + ULTIMATELY PAK CIVIL WAR????

Looks like the Bammer WH = USA may not be the only Govt. getting petitions for formal secession from angry Citizens [US State-Local Govts = Pak Provincial Govts in 2014]???
