Source: ProPublica
In an investigative report released yesterday, the independent non-profit journalism project ProPublica challenged Obama administration claims that may grossly under count civilian deaths from U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan:

In addition to the article, ProPublica published an interactive graphic contrasting various claims regarding civilian casualties from drone strikes. Informational pop-up windows are included when you view the chart at ProPublica's site.
