"And how many other militants were lost in this particular strike?"
To be honest, at this point I have no clue who the US considered "militants" and who it doesn't. Apparently, you're a "militant" simply by physically being in the wrong location or by irritating the US.
This could not have happened where I work, or at least it would have been detected much sooner. Here's how my employer runs company emails: if you are sending an email to a non-company address, then it goes through extra layers of scrutiny (including examining attachments to the extent of even unzipping and examining archive files).
This examination is VERY strict, and if the email you're sending even looks like it might contain something sensitive, then that email is not sent. Instead, you get a warning of the problem and are told to contact the security team to get an exception put into place if needed.
Re: Re: Re: Re: little difference between major corporations and the government
True, I was speaking from the point of view of the government, which appears to be largely run by corporate interests. You can avoid doing business with many corporations, but you still can't avoid being subject to their desires as expressed through the government.
