U.S. drones targeting rescuers and mourners


On December 30 of last year, ABC News reported on a 16-year-old Pakistani boy, Tariq Khan, who was killed with his 12-year-old cousin when a car in which he was riding was hit with a missile fired by a U.S. drone. As I noted at the time, the report contained this extraordinary passage buried in the middle:
Asked for documentation of Tariq and Waheed’s deaths, Akbar did not provide pictures of the missile strike scene. Virtually none exist, since drones often target people who show up at the scene of an attack.
What made that sentence so amazing was that it basically amounts to a report that the U.S. first kills people with drones, then fires on the rescuers and others who arrive at the scene where the new corpses and injured victims lie.
In a just-released, richly documented report, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, on behalf of the Sunday Times, documents that this is exactly what the U.S. is doing — and worse:
The CIA’s drone campaign in Pakistan has killed dozens of civilians who had gone to help rescue victims or were attending funerals, an investigation by the Bureau for the Sunday Times has revealed.
The findings are published just days after President Obama claimed that the drone campaign in Pakistan was a “targeted, focused effort” that “has not caused a huge number of civilian casualties”. . . .
A three month investigation including eye witness reports has found evidence that at least 50 civilians were killed in follow-up strikes when they had gone to help victims. More than 20 civilians have also been attacked in deliberate strikes on funerals and mourners. The tactics have been condemned by leading legal experts.
Although the drone attacks were started under the Bush administration in 2004, they have been stepped up enormously under Obama.
There have been 260 attacks by unmanned Predators or Reapers in Pakistan by Obama’s administration – averaging one every four days.
As I indicated, there have been scattered, mostly buried indications in the American media that drones have been targeting and killing rescuers. As the Bureau put it: “Between May 2009 and June 2011, at least fifteen attacks on rescuers were reported by credible news media, including the New York Times, CNN,Associated Press, ABC News and Al Jazeera.” Killing civilians attending the funerals of drone victims is also well-documented by the Bureau’s new report:
Other tactics are also raising concerns. On June 23 2009 the CIA killed Khwaz Wali Mehsud, a mid-ranking Pakistan Taliban commander. They planned to use his body as bait to hook a larger fish – Baitullah Mehsud, then the notorious leader of the Pakistan Taliban.
“A plan was quickly hatched to strike Baitullah Mehsud when he attended the man’s funeral,” according to Washington Post national security correspondent Joby Warrick, in his recent book The Triple Agent. “True, the commander… happened to be very much alive as the plan took shape. But he would not be for long.”
The CIA duly killed Khwaz Wali Mehsud in a drone strike that killed at least five others. . . .
Up to 5,000 people attended Khwaz Wali Mehsud’s funeral that afternoon, including not only Taliban fighters but many civilians. US drones struck again, killing up to 83 people. As many as 45 were civilians, among them reportedly ten children and four tribal leaders.

Not sure if the dweebs who operate the drones from the safety of their darkened rooms inside the Pentagon actually say "Oops!!" on these particular murders or if they instead just hit the Reset Button and start their Game over.

It is shocking to me that us Americans have so little remorse for innocent lives in other countries. Most Americans don't give a shit as long as its not happening here and its sickening.

All I can picture is Obama and Hillary with the boys watching the raid in Pakistan and taping it so the lame stream media would show it. Yes I agree, Obama is a killer, this is all happening on his watch.

Exactly. That's the reason people's attitude annoys me. I, for some reason, keep thinking us North Americans are more evolved and just better people. Maybe I expect too much out of people.

Obama: Nobel Peace Prize is 'call to action'




October 09, 2009

  • t1port.nobel2.gi.jpg
President Obama said Friday that he was "surprised and deeply humbled" by the decision of the Norwegian Nobel Committee to award him the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

The committee said it honored Obama for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."

Obama said he viewed the decision less as a recognition of his own accomplishments and more as "a call to action."

The decision appeared to catch most observers by surprise. Nominations for the prize had to be postmarked by February 1, only 12 days after Obama took office. The committee sent out its solicitation for nominations last September, two months before Obama was elected president.

And the piece of shit speaks again. Just my opinion of course.

ayuh.....While I myself clearly have an extremely stern POV on these military actions by U.S., I've absolutely no interest in "revenge" deaths being wished upon anyone. Hard to believe that someone (Sumday/Jaguara) could take my complaint against undue violence & try to ride that into promotion of even more undue violence

Fletch, actually it's probably smarter doing it this way

BushCo of course started the murderous attacks when he sent USAF to bomb the bejeebers out of Iraqi population centers. But the downside to BushCo strategy was the thousands (4K+) of coffins coming back to the USA with dead Americans inside.

Well okay, so maybe they tried to hide the coffins by sneaking them onto Dover AFB at 3am....But those goddamn pesky Bloggers and other Unwashed Hippie Tree Huggers just keep getting the pictures anyway and posting them harshly in the public eye.

SO OBAMA - being a pretty smart cat compared to the previous POTUS decides, "Hey, we can use these drones from 1500 miles away....kill all the Evil Muslins we want and NO AMERICANS get hurt! The American troops now just come in AFTER the drones kill civilian daddies & mommas and then snag all the photo ops by the embedded reporters from The Weekly Standard and FOXNews where they're handing out candy bars to the weeping children and making them smile.

BUT...to be real thorough, it's best to take out at least a few more family members at the funerals, so that all that's left is kids under aged 6. Let's face it....By the time they are old enough to try and wreak vengance against the U.S. troops who will by then be in their 22nd consecutive year of Forcible Occupation, you and I wll long since have forgotten about the source of their original grievance (American military murdering their family members).

So that will make it Super Easy for you and I (in the year 2024) to just slot them as Evil Muslin Radical Extremist Terrorists if you know what I mean and I think you do

And the Forever War goes on and on and on and on

Correctly stated.

President Obama is just as much a murderer as was his predecessor GW Bush, though the number of fatalities is much lower under B.O.

At the end of the day, it's sobering evidence that neither President was (or is) actually making the final calls on how the U.S. military decides which funerals and which civilians to murder on a given day.
