Is there any evidence that the information provided by any technology for a drone attack has been inaccurate because of a bug or bad code?

It's not like the government is using machine learning to categorize likely terrorists and then blowing them up in their homes.

1. is there any evidence supporting the existence of a bug free system?

2. you're probably over-simplifying the actual process in which we algorithmically identify and eliminate terror threats. which i'd bet for all intents and purposes is just as scary.

my point here is that you, like you identified of your parent's post, are operating under quite a few assumptions.
