Mr Karzai said he would issue a decree on Sunday, less than a week after 10 civilians were killed in a night raid in the eastern province of Kunar.

2. Given the extensive discussion on drones on DU, you'd think this would get a bit more attention

Kicking it, because, you know, this is news about what half of DU has been arguing for the past week.
