Take Down the Drones

July 4, 2016

As I await the bombardment of fireworks for tonight’s 4th of July celebration, I can not help thinking about those living under US military bombardment and drone attacks abroad.

On Friday, just before the long weekend and Independence Day celebrations, the Obama administration released an internal review of the number of civilians killed by drone attacks in countries where the U.S. is not officially at war. The report admitted to the killing of between 64 and 116 civilian noncombatants during the Obama administration. Are these lives so dispensable in the Global War on Terror?

I don’t believe so.

Take down the drones.



Read a great analysis of the Obama administration report at The Intercept. You can also learn more about the drone program in The Drone Papers published by the The Intercept.
