Description
Score sheet depicting children murdered in drone attacks by representing them as stylized gingerbread boys and girls with a line drawn through them. “According to a UN special report on the subject, targeted killings are premeditated acts of lethal force employed by states in times of peace or during armed conflict to eliminate specific individuals outside their custody…The primary focus of U.S. targeted killings, particularly through drone strikes, has been on the al-Qaeda and Taliban leadership networks in Afghanistan and the remote tribal regions of Pakistan. However, U.S. operations have expanded in recent years to include countries such as Somalia and Yemen.” “In recent years, the White House has made notable efforts to clarify its legal justification for targeted killings amid calls from lawmakers, rights activists, and legal scholars for greater transparency and oversight of the lethal drone program.” -- The Council on Foreign Relations Website -- Despite these explanations, many Americans feel that the Obama administration should not be using war tactics such as targeted killings, due to the high probability of child and civilian casualties.
