Shocking video: American Boy Killed By U.S. Drone Strike

 The ACLU and CCR have filed a lawsuit challenging the government's targeted killing of three U.S. citizens in drone strikes far from any armed conflict zone.

In Al-Aulaqi v. Panetta (Al-Awlaki v. Panetta) the groups charge that the U.S. government's killings of U.S. citizens Anwar Al-Aulaqi, Samir Khan, and 16-year-old Abdulrahman Al-Aulaqi in Yemen last year violated the Constitution's fundamental guarantee against the deprivation of life without due process of law. 

The killings were part of a broader program of "targeted killing" by the United States outside the context of armed conflict and based on vague legal standards, a closed executive process, and evidence never presented to the courts. 

Abdulrahman Anwar Alawlaki was a typical 16 year old teenage student. He liked swimming and he was into rap and hip hop. He was murdered by a U.S. drone. Sources claimed he was a "21 year old militant", until his family released his U.S. birth certificate

 

Abdulrahman Anwar Alawlaki was a typical 16 year old teenage high school student. He liked swimming and he was into rap and hip hop. He was murdered by the Yemeni and US Governments in an airstrike on Friday 14 Oct 2011. We are angry and we will never forget. End the killing of civilians, bring the murderers to justice, join the cause.
