According to Amnesty International, international law prohibits the arbitrary killing of civilians, and the Obama administration's drone attacks have been investigated by the group, evaluating them as war crimes against humanity. Amnesty International urges the United States to:
Publicly disclose the facts and legal basis for drone strikes carried out in Pakistan, and information about any investigation into killings by U.S. drones
Video from RT news reveals some of the Amnesty International findings disclosed in their 76 page report called:
Most of the Obama administration's drone bombings have occurred in North Waziristan, Pakistan. Amnesty international investigated the war crimes that revealed the U.S. drone attacks have killed several civilian workers, children and elderly. Amnesty International further claims the:
secrecy surrounding the drones program gives the US administration a license to kill beyond the reach of the courts or basic standards of international law......
lethal force is lawful only when strictly unavoidable to protect against an imminent threat to life
The Obama administration drone attacks have made this northern region of Pakistan a hotbed of controversy, with al-Qaeda, al-Qaeda linked groups, and Taliban fighters threatening those they feel have been cooperating with the U.S.
Amnesty International also report repeat attacks on villagers, as survivors try civilian rescue attempts. They ask that those responsible for the "unlawful" drone attacks and war crimes, be held accountable:
in fair trials without recourse to the death penalty, for unlawful killings and other human rights abuses in North Waziristan.
Amnesty International also wants to insure all drone attack victims, including their family members, receive justice and restitution for their losses; further asking the international community to oppose U.S. drone attacks.
