Great quotes

"Eight-five percent are shots not fired, when you're talking about night raids and disruption... Over 50 percent of the time they hit the target that they're after, which shows the intelligence has been accurate."

- unnamed Western intelligence official talking about night raids in Afghanistan. Hmm, would have to be very significantly higher than 50% to 'prove' the accuracy of the underlying intelligence.
