‘most killed in us led drone strikes not intended for 우리카지노쿠폰target killing or for collateral damage,” she said, citing the two strikes she criticized: one on a medical team treating a civilian who died of cancer, and another on a family member killed by a drone strike in Somalia.
Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), who sits on the intelligence committee, called on Trump to share the details of the strikes but said they didn’t explain them.
“If you really believe that our leaders are not lying, this is a big problem that we need to be aware of,” Wyden said. “And to not provide information to the public of the facts about our drones has a huge impact on our trust of them.”
A review of drone and weapons policy by The Intercept and ProPublica found hundreds of civilian deaths since 9/11, including several in Yemen, Iraq, and Somalia, which the White House said was justified as targeted strikes. The administration acknowledged that drone strikes in Iraq killed up to two dozen women and children, but declined to account for those deaths.
The administration’s explanation that drones and other weapons “kill many more civilians than they kill fighters” is inconsistent with reports of civilian deaths from drones and other strikes in Pakistan, where there is a st파라다이스 카지노rong tradition of the practice. A U.S. drone strike in 2007 in the area of a tribal leader killed six women and children and wounded more than 100 others, including women and children “killed in their homes by [Fateh] al-Din” — a name apparently borrowed from the al-Qaida faction. The administration declined to release any of the men who died밀리언 클럽 카지노, and it has said that the man who killed him was “known to intelligence officials.”
In a statement, the White House said: “Any allegations of wrongdoing in those cases are simply not true — as is apparent from an independent review conducted by a coalition of experts. As president, I continue to believe the United States takes the use of lethal force very seriously, and will continue to uphold its obligations under both law and United Nations Security Council resolution.”
There are multiple independent reviews underway in Pakistan about the drone strikes carried out.
The Intercept found in a report in February 2014 that the White House’s assertion that drone strikes have killed thousands of militants may not be accurate because the government’s database didn’t include many civilian victims of the strikes. In a separate report, the New America Foundation called for greater disclosure about the number of civilian casualties of drone strikes.
