Signature strikes have exponentially multiplied under this administration’s watch, costing us countless civilian casualties, including American lives, because they target suspicious-looking groups of people without knowing their specific identities. These strikes have provoked anti-American unrest in countries like Pakistan due to the death toll of innocent people.
First authorized by President Bush in 2008, these “signature” strikes make up the overwhelming majority of drone attacks carried out by the United States.
President Obama: reject the "global war" legal theory today, once and for all. Halt signature strikes and put an end to the unlawful and immoral killings of innocent civilians.
