US to release information on drone strikes
Voice of America - 03/08/2016
“Data is absolutely essential to make that assessment,” said Max Abrahms, a professor of political science at Northeastern University.
“One of the big criticisms of the drone program is that it’s so unregulated and that information has been released in a very ad hoc way,” he said.
“It would be useful to know exactly when the strikes happened and against whom,” Abrahms added. “Then we can match that data against the terrorist group to understand whether [the drone strike] helps to weaken the group in terms of degrading its ability to mount operations.”
