This petition had 1 supporter


Amnesty Amherst is campaigning to ensure that our country's use of lethal force comply with international law. The Amnesty USA petition to President Obama is to ensure that our government refrain from the unlawful use of lethal forces. The petition calls for the disclosure of legal and factual details about so-called "targeted killings, signature strikes, and Terrorist Attack Disruption Strikes." Furthermore, the petition demands that the U.S. end claims that it is authorized by international law to use lethal force anywhere in the world under the theory that it is involved in a 'global war' against Al-Qaeda and other armed groups and individuals. The petition lastly calls for U.S. recognition and application of international human rights law to all counterterrorism operations, and that our country bring its policies and practices in line with international human rights obligations.
