Drone Frindly fire

On  April 6, 2011 two U.S. troops were hit by "friendly fire" from a drone aircraft. The two were killed by a Hellfire missile after being mistook for insurgents moving to attack a group of Marines in southern Afghanistan, the Tribune Washington Bureau reported April 11, 2011.
Many Predators and more heavily armed Reaper drones fly every day over Afghanistan, operated remotely by pilots at air bases in the United States. Cameras aboard the drones provide live video feeds to ground combat units. The missile strike occurred about 9:30 a.m. near the town of Sangin.
