"How are these drone strikes being authorized, using what legal framework? How do you get on these kill and target lists? Those are the type of questions that are very much still outstanding. President Obama has yet to offer any details along these lines. We also believe that Congress needs to open impartial and transparent investigations around this as well."

– Interview with Rachel O'Leary, deputy director of membership with Amnesty International USA

Over the course of the U.S. war against terrorism, and since the Obama administration increased the U.S. CIA and military’s use of drone strikes targeting suspected terrorists in Pakistan and elsewhere in the Middle East and North Africa, human rights groups have focused on the controversy surrounding the rising number of civilian casualties resulting from those attacks. Amnesty International recently released a study assessing the consequences of U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan for the period between January 2012 and August 2013.  Story continues

union

More than 5,000 young people converged in Pittsburgh for the biennial PowerShift conference Oct. 18 through 21, where the focus is on the next generation's response to climate disruption. Pittsburgh is also the headquarters of the United Steelworkers Union. With more than 850,000 members, it's the largest industrial union in North America and includes many workers not affiliated with the steel industry. Leo Gerard has served as the Steelworkers’ union president since 2001, and under his leadership, the union has been a leading advocate of the principle that good jobs and environmental protection can go hand in hand. First, with the Apollo Alliance and subsequently through the Blue/Green Alliance, the Steelworkers Union has allied with the Sierra Club and other environmental groups to pursue common goals, without needing to agree on everything.  Story continues
