Interesting

In today's print edition of the Washington Times is this oddly slanted headline:

Pentagon gives more room for deadly errors in drone strikes Warriors are told collateral damage 'must not be excessive'

What really grabbed me was that "Warriors". Really? Drone pilots are "warriors" now? But I also wanted to get the link. And look what happened on line? The headline and subheader got changed:
Obama war chiefs widen drone kill box
Lethality of collateral damage ‘must not be excessive’
A glance at the URL tells us that didn't happen as a result of two audiences or anything. Instead, someone decided to change it after it was posted.(p.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/dec/3/pentagon-gives-more-room-for-deadly-error-in-drone/). Someone must have had some second thoughts...

Perhaps, just perhaps that first headline didn't blame Obama enough, while implying that "deadly errors" actually occur?
