Militants lived in the compound, but so did civilians, the officers said.

I'm so happy to have someone like him to do my thinking for me.

I feel safer already.

13. I doubt this will cause any blowback at all

because if drone strikes were launched by a foreign military on US soil some people, if not most, of us would be quite indifferent or supportive, right?
