America's Moral Vacuum: Dead Afghans = Lost Emails

It seems that U.S. troops in the field are getting so much information from so many different sources about targets for obliteration, they’re having trouble figuring how who to kill. Assorted military experts told the Times that information overload is the reason the American military winds up massacring so many civilians in Afghanistan.

All those smart bombs and automated, unmanned airplanes and other brilliant gadgets are just, well, too smart for the soldiers to keep up with, inevitably – but not on purpose, of course – causing collateral damage to Afghan women, children, families, wedding parties and other nuisances that clutter up the landscape of the country, getting in the way of the U.S. war machine.'
