Drone Strike data as XML/JSON etc?

Is there a source anywhere for Drone Strike data (Date, kills, location etc.) available as an XML or JSON feed? I'm looking to pull in and crunch the numbers for a Processing project.

Here's an interactithingy map of drone strikes in Pakistan published last October, originally included in this Slate article; maybe you can take it apart to figure out where the data is coming from and whether you can use it too.

I'd read a few months back about an app that was mapping drone strikes. Article in NYT bits blog here suggests data is available from The Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

Google returns Living Under Drones which links to New America Foundation’s Year of the Drone project and The Long War Journal.

For example, pakistan-strikes.php references 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 (all XML).

tangentially, there was a brouhaha over Apple blocking/de-listing the app that would push/publish drone strikes
