Living Under Drones

An important new report from the Stanford and New York University law schools finds drone use has caused widespread post-tramatic stress disorder and an overall breakdown of functional society in North Waziristan. In addition, the report finds the use of a “double tap” procedure, in which a drone strikes once and strikes again not long after, has led to deaths of rescuers and medical professionals.

“Through our report we would like the American people to understand that the narrative they have heard about drones is not accurate. That drones cause death to civilians, they terrorize entire populations and they may well be counter productive at many levels.”

- Professor James Cavalarro, Director of Stanford Law School’s International Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Clinic
