We’ve killed 4,700,” Mr Lindsey Graham was quoted as saying by the Easley Patch, a local website covering the small town of Easley in South Carolina.
It was the first time a politician or any government representative had referred to a total number of fatalities in the drone strikes, which have been condemned by rights groups as extrajudicial assassinations.
The toll from hundreds of drone-launched missile strikes against suspected Al-Qaeda militants in Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere has remained a mystery, as US officials refuse to publicly discuss any details of the covert campaign.
But Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a staunch supporter of the drone raids, openly cited a number that exceeds some independent estimates of the death toll.
“We’ve killed 4,700,” Mr Graham was quoted as saying by the Easley Patch, a local website covering the small town of Easley in South Carolina.
“Sometimes you hit innocent people, and I hate that, but we’re at war, and we’ve taken out some very senior members of Al-Qaeda,” Mr Graham told the Easley Rotary Club.

Why only kill people abroad?
Why not use drones inside the USA, to terminate people who do not submit to the instructions of Homeland security?
Since most of the people today are tagged with a GPS, its a piece of cake to traced them, send a drone and drop a small missile.
To send criminals to prison is very costly. If you can hit them inside a deep forest, few if now will miss them. Tax payers money have been saved.
If you are smart, you will see that the drone one day will come for you. In particular if you speared “hate criminality”.
Like saying Islam is an evil ideology, homosexuality is sin, and those who do not believe in Jesus will have to spend eternity in Hell.
Are you ready for the ultimate war on those who spread the gospel?
