The CIA currently controls a program which utilizes drones - unmanned planes - to target and bomb specific areas in the Middle East in an attempt to destroy members of the Taliban. While the program does seem to have frightened Taliban insurgents and left them with few safe areas, the program is far too secretive and has killed dozens of innocent, uninvolved civilians. It is also cultivating hatred for the United States, as people who have had friends or family killed in these strikes suddenly have great incentive to join the terrorists.
The CIA needs to ease up on these strikes and open the program to intense scrutiny by the U.S. government. Please sign this petition asking them to decrease the number of strikes considerably, turn the program over to the U.S. military so that the government can keep tabs on it more easily, and/or abandon the program altogether.
