UN Investigator Urges US To Publish Drone Strike Data

Well, this is the most transparent administration in history, right?


A United Nations investigator has called on the US to make public its data about drone strikes and civilian casualties.

Ben Emmerson has spent the year travelling to countries where the strikes have taken place, and speaking to US officials.

He says the involvement of the CIA creates "an almost insurmountable obstacle to transparency".

In Pakistan he was told at least 400 civilians had been killed since 2004.
