[Watch] Obama War Crimes Investigation In United Nations
The U.N. has called for the United States to declassify operations run by the CIA, as well as a statement from the Hussein Obama regime over the legality of the attacks from the airborne unmanned platforms.
The report states that U.N. special investigator, Ben Emerson, headed a study which looked into drone strikes in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Gaza, Libya and Somalia.
Pakistan claims the U.S. has conducted 330 drone strikes within their country alone since 2004. Their contention is that of the approximately 2200 drone related deaths, over 400 were civilians. The report also claims that in Yemen, more civilians have been killed than terrorists.
The Hussein Obama administration is accused of withholding information regarding the attacks from the investigators and creating “hurdles to transparency.” Emerson argues that a claim of “national security” is not a valid reason upon which to withhold data regarding the means through which casualties are counted.
The report indicates that the highest levels of deaths occurred between 2008 and 2010, which the impact being due partially to an increased intensity of strikes in Pakistan.
John Brennan, now the CIA director, previously stated in June of 2011, that there has not been a single civilian casualty in Pakistan due to drone strikes.
An upcoming general assembly of the United Nations will be held soon in New York City, in regards to this issue, after complaints were filed against the Obama administration by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.
