Your response proves the point: few news agencies are willing to report on it.
I know it's hard to believe, but it is true. All you have to do is Google "US drone attacks in Pakistan."
So far this year there have been 109 KNOWN CIA drone attacks in Pakistan to kill "suspects." By definition, that means they were all innocent civilians because none of the dead were in any army and none of them had been proved guilty in any court. Therefore, again, by definition, the CIA is conducting an organized murder campaign in Pakistan and nobody seems to notice. Or if they do hear about it they don't care (who cares about a bunch of dirt-poor foreigners getting killed by remote-controlled model airplanes half way around the world from our comfortable lives).
Few citizens in Pakistan have the will or the resources to do anything about it. Their government won't help them for fear of alienating the US.
But a few of the injured citizens are using the courts to try to bring what the CIA is doing to public attention. Here is the link to an Associated Press article about one ongoing lawsuit that will give you some background:
: Is this really possible? The US military assassinating people in Pakistan? Are you sure? Do you have proof or is this just more conspiracy theory crap?
: : How can it be that almost NOBODY is reporting on this? It is a significant change in the way America is supposed to be conducting war (if this really is a war) and nobody knows about it. Talk about doing government in secret.
: : : US assassination drones killed 60 more "suspects" today, and still nobody seems to notice.
: : : What would the world think if that US soldier who was guiding those drones put a gun to the head of those 60 suspects and pulled the trigger.
: : : Why isn't anybody noticing? Doe no one care about executing possibly innocent people anymore - as long the only "suspects" we kill are foreigners?
: : : Don't believe me? Think it's impossible the US could be doing such a thing? Here is a link to the news about it:
