Visualizing Every Drone Strike in Pakistan

Pitch Interactive has been getting a lot of attention for producing a visualization of every CIA drone strike in Pakistan since 2004 when they first began. One of the first bits of information presented in this visualization is that less than 2% of the victims of drone strikes have been high-value targets, with the rest of them being women, children, civilians, and “alleged” combatants.

I’ve written before about the importance of having a counter-narrative to the mainstream discourse on drone strikes – one that doesn’t dehumanize the victims or render them a mere statistic. In many ways, that is what the point of this blog is. Pitch Interactive has done a great job of combining modern technology with this counter-narrative to provide a gripping and thought-provoking perspective on drone strikes.
