A Nobel Peace Prize Winner Dropped 26,000 Bombs in 2016

A Nobel Peace Prize Winner Dropped 26,000 Bombs in 2016


(ANTIMEDIA) According to an estimate
conducted by Micah Zenko, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign
Relations (CFR), and national security expert Jennifer Wilson, a CFR
research associate, President Obama dropped over 26,000 bombs in 2016.

Syria was hit with 12,192 bombs, the highest number of any country on
Obama’s hit list. Iraq came in a close second, receiving 12,095 bombs.
Altogether, the peace prize laureate dropped at least 26,171 bombs in
seven countries last year.

As noted by Zenko and Wilson, the estimates are relatively conservative:

“In President Obama’s last year in office, the United States
dropped 26,171 bombs in seven countries. This estimate is undoubtedly
low, considering reliable data is only available for airstrikes in
Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Libya, and a single “strike,” according to
the Pentagon’s definition, can involve multiple bombs or munitions. In
2016, the United States dropped 3,027 more bombs—and in one more
country, Libya—than in 2015.”
