The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, heralded as the leading authority for drone-strike casualty numbers by the recent report entitled Living Under Drones by Stanford and NYU researchers, reports 178 children have died in Yemen and Pakistan as a result of U.S. drone strikes. War Costs has produced a video and report on the topic.
Please consider joining us in our appeal to leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives to reintroduce H. Res. 819, which calls for more accountability and transparency for U.S. Drone policy.
Speaker Boehner and Minority Leader Pelosi,
H. Res. 819 calls for the release of the legal justification of U.S. drone strikes that have killed civilians in targeted areas, as numerous reports have detailed.
Please reintroduce this bill to the House floor this month, as too much of U.S. government's drone policy is kept secret from Congress and the American people.
thank you, Charlotte Lindsey
