Senator Feinstein: Why did the US kill two 16 year-olds?

On February 7, 2013, at the CIA confirmation hearing chaired by Senator Dianne Feinstein, Chief counterterrorism advisor John Brennan made a remarkable statement. He said that if a U.S. drone strike killed innocent people, “we need to acknowledge it publicly…in th interest of transparency.” Join us and send a letter to Senator Feinstein, urging her to start with two cases: 16-year-old U.S. citizen Abdulrahman Al-Awlaki, killed by a drone strike in Yemen, and 16-year-old Tariq Aziz, killed by a drone strike in Pakistan. She should ask Brennan to acknowledge whether the killing of these two teenagers was a mistake -- perhaps a clarification of the cold-blooded murder of two 16-year-olds will lead to an investigation of the hundreds of drone casualties worldwide.
