President Biden may be winding down the drone wars.  Data collected by Airwars.org, an independent organization that monitors civilian casualties in war, indicate drone killings have dwindled to almost nothing.  Above are a couple of Airwars charts.

This is excellent news, if true and if it is more than temporary.

Ryan Cooper, writing for The Week, wonders why Biden doesn’t take credit for his achievement.  My guess is that Biden thinks restraint is unpopular.  It is certainly unpopular in the Washington press corps.
