Leaked CIA Reports Say "Targeted Killings" Unsuccessful

A leaked CIA report has revealed that the US government's program to capture and kill militants has not been successful.

The analyst, Ryan Dawson, makes two great points in relation to the leak that the CIA drone program is actually counter productive:

First point. The negative results of the drone attacks on civilians is intentional. This makes sense when we consider the neocon objective to destroy countries that pose a threat to the State of Israel. The CIA is following political orders when it comes to this drone-war policy.

Second point. The leak will be used to justify the deployment of ground troops, a change of strategy, in light of this long running 'failure'.
