Phi Beta Iota:  The Al Qaeda assessment — if this is not a false flag document — of the relative cost of drones versus fighter aircraft and their support bases leaves out the cost of bandwidth and the loss of pilot situational awareness.  It also provides useful data points for the US public to evaluate whether we should be accepting of the expenditure of public funds.  Absent forensics validated by a multinational panel, we assume all captured documents are false flag fabrications.
