A report by the London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism may undercut President Obama’s claim that U.S. drones haven’t caused many civilian casualties. According to the bureau, the U.S. has repeatedly targeted rescuers who responded to the scene of a drone strike, as well as mourners at funerals. It found that at least 50 civilians have been killed in the follow-up strikes and another 20 at funerals. The report is based on interviews with witnesses in Pakistan’s tribal area, and American officials have questioned its accuracy.
