Ask the Hard Questions About the Targeted Killing Program

17 April 2013 Published in Federal Policy Work

drone-mdOn Tuesday morning, the Senate will hold its first-ever hearing on drones and the killing program in which an estimated 4,700 people across two continents have been killed, including four American citizens. This vast killing program is unlawful, dangerous, and unwise. Amazingly, the Obama administration continues to hide its legal memos on when it believes any president can order the Pentagon and the CIA to kill people far from any battlefield.

 

Senator Hatch sits on the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights, which is holding the hearing. Send Senator Hatch a clear, strong message that you are watching and are expecting him to ask the hard questions about the government's secret killing program.

The hearing will take place on Tuesday, April 23, at 10:00 a.m. EST. You can tune in to the hearing to learn more. In the meantime, please ask Senator Hatch to raise the tough questions and join the fight for the values of transparency and accountability that keep our nation safe, just, and free.

Thank you for taking action.
