  •  Not only a guess (4+ / 0-)

    Sometimes it is an anonymous guess.  The public has been misled, purposely, about the nature of drone strikes.  Not all of these bombings are a result of targeting a known terrorist.  Signature strikes are done on people we don't know, based on some criteria that might be as simple as being in the wrong place geographically.  In those cases, we have no idea who it is that we just killed.

    Also, deliberate suppression of information about women and children blown up by drones is being done.  I do believe that some of those 83% are persuadable and I'd take it further than that.   The high approval rate is a result of secrecy and blatant lying about these drone programs.
