The Ghost and the Machine: Drone Warfare and Accountability

From the

by Kathy Kelly and Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers

Fazillah, age 25, lives in Maidan Shar, the central city of Afghanistan’s Wardak province. She married about six years ago, and gave birth to a son, Aymal, who just turned five without a father. Fazillah tells her son, Aymal, that his father was killed by an American bomber plane, remote-controlled by computer.

That July, in 2007, Aymal’s father was sitting in a garden with four other men. A weaponized drone, what we used to call an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle or UAV, was flying, unseen, overhead, and fired missiles into the garden, killing all five men.

To the Editor:

Love and pain has compelled this letter. Several weeks ago it was announced women are now fully vetted for front line combat. As a former Marine, trained at Paris Island, SC and taught how to kill, there is little doubt in my mind, women will be highly effective in combat. I am sure they will effectively participate with the same Esprit de Corps as men. The psychological techniques of classical and operant conditioning, now fully developed and highly refined, will turn all but the best of us into programmed killers.

Drone Resisters Speak Out At Trial

From the

compiled by Ben Kuebrich and Ed Kinane

After a several-hour-long trial on December 13, 2012, DeWitt Town Court judge Robert Jokl found eleven members of Upstate Drone Action guilty of “trespass,” a violation. The “trespass” occurred on June 28 outside the main entrance of Hancock Air Base, just north of Syracuse, as the defendants attempted to deliver a citizens’ indictment to the Base chain of command for the Reaper drone war crimes being committed from there. Here we present extracts (recalled from notes and memory) of several of the defendants’ court testimonies.

Editors’ note: The PNL is pleased to introduce this new column by Seth Rutledge. (The first edition appeared in last month’s issue.) Seth will compile headlines of US-led or US-backed military activity around the world and put them in context when necessary. It’s not always easy to see how Washington’s influence makes its way into various global affairs. Our hope is that this column will shed light on the reach of the US military-industrial complex and draw attention to the many struggles worldwide that are too often overlooked.
