Finds of the Week:

- Living Under Drones: Death, Injury, and Trauma to Civilians From US Drone Practices in Pakistan, a report from the International Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Clinic at Stanford Law School and the Global Justice Clinic at NYU’s School of Law — “In the United States, the dominant narrative about the use of drones in Pakistan is of a surgically precise and effective tool that makes the US safer by enabling “targeted killing” of terrorists, with minimal downsides or collateral impacts. This narrative is false. Following nine months of intensive research—including two investigations in Pakistan, more than 130 interviews with victims, witnesses, and experts, and review of thousands of pages of documentation and media reporting—this report presents evidence of the damaging and counterproductive effects of current US drone strike policies.”
