US senator proudly asserts 4,700 killed in drone strikes

""We've killed 4,700," [Repulican Senator] Graham was quoted as saying by the Easley Patch, a local website covering the small town of Easley. "Sometimes you hit innocent people, and I hate that, but we're at war, and we've taken out some very senior members of al-Qaeda," he told the local Rotary Club."" [US senator says 4,700 killed in drone strikes].

Collateral damage in an undeclared war fought by military gamers. I wonder how many "senior members of al-Qaeda" are in the 4,700? I sure feel relieved that the good senator hates killing innocent people.

Gee - as long as "war" is declared, however waged unconstitutionally, then the killing of innocent people is justified.
