In Afghanistan, the U.S. military said that 16 militants were killed in two separate attacks by unmanned drones.
They took place in war-torn Helmand province and could mark a turning point in American war tactics.
While drones have been used widely across the border in Pakistan, they have been used mainly for surveillance purposes in Afghanistan. Until yesterday’s operations, there were very few known drone strikes in Afghanistan.
As the war in Afghanistan escalates, should the U.S. broaden its use of unmanned drones against militants, even if innocent civilians die?
