This week, as anti-American protests continued in Pakistan and across the Middle East, President Obama, speaking to the U.N. General Assembly, condemned as "crude and disgusting" the video being blamed for sparking the outrage throughout the Muslim world. As well he should. But he had nothing to say about something else "crude and disgusting": the drone attacks Pakistan's Foreign Minister fingered as the primary reason her country has become one of the most virulent anti-American countries in the world -- and which a new study, "Living Under Drones," labeled "damaging and counterproductive." Indeed, the Obama administration has defended its drone policy and argued that there is no "credible evidence" drone strikes have led to any civilian deaths -- a claim the study strongly refutes (putting the actual number between 474 and 881). Now, we may not have control over crazies making inflammatory videos, but we do have control over a misguided policy that is killing innocent people -- and fanning the flames of hatred.
