Drone Attacks in Pakistan ‘Backfiring’

The US drone attacks in Pakistan are backfiring and need to be called off, top adviser to the US army chief in Afghanistan David Kilcullen has said. Responding to a congressman on what the US government should do in Pakistan, he said: “We need to call off the drones.”

According to a report published in the Los Angeles Times, Kilcullen has no objection to killing “bad guys”. However, from a practical standpoint, he says the strikes are creating more enemies than they eliminate.
