Tell Congress What the U.S. Ambassador Acknowledged on Drone Strikes

Until recently, U.S. officials have largely refused to engage, publicly and on the record, on specific criticisms of U.S. drone strike policy in Pakistan. But now, Acting U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan Richard Hoagland has gone on the record to defend the details of U.S. drone strike policy in a meeting with Just Foreign Policy and other U.S. peace delegates in Pakistan.

Urge your representatives in Congress to follow up on what has been acknowledged, like the fact that the U.S. could compensate civilian drone strike victims and their families.
