ACLU Sues Government Over Drones

By Jen DiMascio

The American Civil Liberties Union sued the federal government Tuesday to
learn the use of unmanned drones for targeted killings by the military and
CIA.

"In particular, the lawsuit asks for information on when, where and against
whom drone strikes can be authorized, the number and rate of civilian
casualties and other basic information essential for assessing the wisdom
and legality of using armed drones to conduct targeted killings," the ACLU
said in a statement, announcing its action.

The nonprofit civil liberties group filed initial Freedom of Information Act
requests with the Defense, Justice and State departments and with the
Central Intelligence Agency on Jan. 13. Only the CIA responded, and the ACLU
is pursuing that request with an appeal to the agency.

The military and intelligence communities have increasingly relied on
Predator and Reaper unmanned drones to capture video imagery and launch
deadly missile strikes, particularly lately in Afghanistan and neighboring
Pakistan. The Pentagon, especially, continues to purchase more and more
drones each year.

A New American Foundation study, cited in Jane Mayer's October 2009 New
Yorker piece that drew attention to the CIA's use of killer drones, found
the number of attacks has continued to grow under the Obama administration -
from 34 in 2008 to 43 by October of 2009.

"The government's use of drones to conduct targeted killings raises
complicated questions - not only legal questions, but policy and moral
questions as well," said Jameel Jaffer, director of the ACLU National
Security Project. "These kinds of questions ought to be discussed and
debated publicly, not resolved secretly behind closed doors. While the Obama
administration may legitimately withhold intelligence information as well as
sensitive information about military strategy, it should disclose basic
information about the scope of the drone program, the legal basis for the
program and the civilian casualties that have resulted from the program."

Charles Miller, a spokesman for the Justice Department, which is a defendant
in the suit filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, said he had not yet
seen the complaint.

"The bottom line is that we will review the compliant once we receive it and
make a determination as to how we'll respond in court," he said.

The Defense Department, another defendant, had no immediate comment.

The ACLU must be in the middle of a lack of lesbians trying to sue their school over same-sex prom dates. "NO DIKES TODAY BOYS! LETS GO AFTER UNMANNED DRONES THAT PROTECT US WITHOUT PUTTING AMERICAN LIVES IN JEOPARDY!".....fags.

its sad to know our own people have nothing better to do except to try to sue for being in a war.

heres what i know
- the taliyban has no law and fights however
- Drones save lives
- Drones are bad ***
- Drones are a military item so we might as well take tanks away and other shizzz because everything military puts out kills shizzz, hell might as well sue me i contribute to killing as well

I don't know about all this ACLU ****... but I for one think drones suck hot nuts.
Over the course of my deployments I have seen:
- Drones crashing, prompting a "rescue" mission to be sent out to retrieve them (resulting in coalition force deaths due to IED/ambushes)
- Drones reporting sightings of "enemy personnel" or IEDs that turned out to be erroneous (resulting in unnecessary missions, further risking coalition forces and resulting in fires on civilian targets.)

So all in all the ACLU is going to sue the military for killing people. Then what the purpose of the military if you can't blow **** up?
