Hold the Pentagon Accountable for the Drone Strike that killed 10 Innocent Civilians

On August 29, 10 members of the Ahmadi family, seven of them children, were killed by a U.S. drone strike in Kabul, Afghanistan.

How was the Pentagon held accountable for this horrific crime?

They weren’t. The Pentagon investigated itself for killing 10 innocent civilians and found no negligence and no need for disciplinary action. 

This cannot stand. The Ahmadi family and all innocent civilians who have been killed by U.S. drone strikes need justice. 

Sign your name to call on Congressman Adam Smith, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and Senator Jack Reed, Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee to conduct an independent investigation into this horrific crime. 

Dear Chairman Smith and Reed, 

On August 29, 10 members of the Ahmadi family, seven of them children, were killed by a U.S. drone strike in Kabul, Afghanistan.

The media has been reporting that a “watchdog” has concluded an “independent” investigation that the Pentagon did nothing wrong in a drone strike that killed 10 innocent civilians. What they fail to mention is that this “watchdog” was Air Force Lt. Gen. Sami Said. That’s not an independent investigation--the US Air Force is a branch of the U.S. Military!

As Chairman of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees, you each have the power to call for a truly independent investigation into this horrific crime that killed 10 innocent civilians, seven of them children. The Ahmadi family and the American public deserve to know how this happened and who will face consequences for killing 10 innocent people, especially given that whistleblower Daniel Hale was sent to Federal prison in July for releasing government documents that addressed the same faulty intelligence and other problems inherent to the U.S. drone program that led to the August 29th attack.

The Pentagon must be called upon by people around the world and by the U.S. Congress to make public all of the communications and logs, including communications with the White House, pertaining to the August 29, 2021 drone attack. 

I'm calling on you, Congressman Adam Smith and Senator Jack Reed, to initiate a truly independent investigation into what many international human rights lawyers have said clearly violates international law. 

Respectfully,

Will you sign?
