Child Casualties As a Result of U.S. Drone Strikes

On the eve of President Obama’s second term and a new Congress, we have an unprecedented opportunity to compel answers to much-needed questions about America’s drone policy. Do these drone strikes make the United States any safer, as the government claims is the ultimate goal, or are they a prime recruitment tool that results in more militancy? What happens when the legal and ethical precedents set by U.S. drone strikes are followed by other countries? Is this a short-sighted policy that will have far-reaching effects in the longer term? Are the strikes legal according to American and international standards?

Join us in calling for the U.S. House of Representatives to debate and pass Rep. Dennis Kucinich's bill that calls for more transparency regarding U.S. drone strike policy. Please sign our petition in this effort to compel more accountability for our government's actions.

Thank you for your support.
