WHOOPS & LOOK OUT BELOW! Human Collateral Damage Being Expanded under Obama Administration’s Decision to Not Follow its Own Heightened Standards on Preventing Civilian Deaths


The White House has confirmed it has relaxed standards aimed at preventing civilian deaths for the U.S. airstrikes in Iraq and Syria. According to Yahoo News, the Obama administration has acknowledged that a policy announced last year calling for “near certainty” of no civilian casualties in drone strikes will not apply to the current bombing.

The admission came in response to queries about a strike that killed up to a dozen civilians in the Syrian village of Kafr Deryan last week. The bodies of women and children were reportedly pulled from the rubble after a missile hit a home for displaced residents.
