"Real people are suffering real harm" but these civilian deaths by drones are being mostly ignored by governmental oversight agencies and also by the news media according to James Cavallaro of Stanford University, one of the authors of a study by Stanford and NYU in the report, "Living Under Drones". The results of this recent study reported on Sept. 25, 2012  concludes that only about 2% of drone casualties are top militant leaders. Up to 884 civilians, including 176 children have been killed in Pakistan since 2004 due to drone strikes.  
The drone strikes have inflamed the Pakistani citizens and have violated international law, because the US government has not made it clear that the targets of the strikes are direct threats to the US.
By making the US government program more transparent and accountable hundreds of civilian lives will be saved.

      No innocents should die by the hands of our government. To allow this to continue is to have blood on

      our hands and puts us in violation of international laws that were put in place to protect us and our citizenry as well.
