On Sunday October 6, 2001, former President George W. Bush announced the attack on Afghanistan. Some perceived the action as revenge for 9/11; but that was only a pretext for action that U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Vice President Richard Cheney and “other neo-cons” had been planning for many years. On the morning on 9/11, Rumsfeld said:
This represents little more than one in five of the 2,500 people that are reported to have been killed by drones in Pakistan. Of the named individuals, 295 are CIVILIANS, including 95 CHILDREN, while 255 are alleged militants. There are only two WOMEN identified.
