David Bromwich: The Peace Prize War President

The president’s counter-terrorism czar John Brennan a year ago estimated the civilian casualties from drone attacks at zero. Just three days ago Brennan revised the official version: “It is exceedingly rare, but it has happened” that a drone has killed an unintended victim. Impartial judges, by contrast, have estimated civilian casualties somewhere between 400 and 800 (including 160 children). These deaths are the cause of an anger that every day gains fresh recruits for the terrorist organizations.
