How many bombs did we drop in 2016?

The Council of Foreign Relations says 26,171. They used Pentagon data to arrive at this number, which may be an underestimate. The countries bombed were Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Libya.  In 2016, the United States dropped 3,027 more bombs than in 2015.

These figures seem a bit sketchy. I wonder if they include drone strikes? If so, I doubt the Pakistan figure is accurate.
