NYT: No ‘Militants’ Language This Time

by Mark Wilson

While this article still relies heavily on anonymous sources, it thankfully doesn’t say that fifteen militants were killed. Perhaps the Times has finally taken to heart its own reporting on the fact that the Obama Administration counts all military-age males in a strike zone as “militants” when its anonymous sources report who was killed in a drone strike. (Also note that “officials” are magically able to distinguish between militants and non-militants even though the bodies are charred beyond recognition.)
