To be delivered to President Donald Trump, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Support the Ellison-McGovern-Lee-Grijalva letter calling for a civilian-led independent investigation of the bombing of the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan.
There are currently 6,052 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

US military forces were responsible for the bombing of a Doctors Without Borders [MSF] hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. Twelve humanitarians were killed while they worked; ten patients died in their hospital beds, including three children. US bombing of the hospital persisted, despite the fact that Doctors Without Borders notified the government of its location and the ongoing attack on the hospital.

Cooperating with a thorough civilian-led investigation conducted by the UN or other independent body would communicate to the world that the US is committed to the transparency and accountability required to ensure such a catastrophic event does not happen again. The Pentagon’s changing stories in the wake of the disaster have undermined international confidence in the ability of the Pentagon to conduct a meaningful investigation.

Urge Congress and the Administration to support the Ellison-McGovern-Lee-Grijalva call for a civilian-led independent investigation by signing our petition.
