    because of disagreement with US drone policy?

    AFAIK she was shot because the Taliban wanted to silence her speaking out for womens rights.

    I'd welcome a discussion about the mistreatment of women in much of the Islamic world and how we can empower them, but I suspect a lot of the people who are so outraged by drone strikes would be conspicuously silent.

    I can pretty much tell you one thing - if my family was killed in a drone strike I wouldn't FUCKING SHOOT AN INNOCENT LITTLE GIRL IN THE HEAD WHO HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE DRONE STRIKE FOR THE CRIME OF WANTING TO GET EDUCATED.

    It's pretty disgusting and condescending to Afghans if you think they just genetically default to killing kids for no reason IMO.

    When we stop putting leaders from the past up on pedestals and ignoring their flaws, we can start seeing our present leaders for what they really are.
