The US feared Afghan Zemadi Ahmadi was a terrorist. But we had wrongly identified him, and we killed him and 9 of his family members in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Aug. 29. We are sorry! Here are two videos, by Kriss Avery, of our drone war protest Nov. 29 at Whiteman AFB.
The rally “Fly Kites, Not Drones” took wing at the Spirit Gate to Whiteman Air Force Base April 30. Eight kites kissed the sky as 30 people, with peace dog Lily, condemned drone warfare. At Whiteman and about 40 other US bases, personnel guide drones to their targets. “The Bureau of Investigative Journalism says as many as 4,000 people, including more than 200 children, have been killed by drone strikes in Pakistan alone,” said Joy First of Mount Horeb, WI, keynote speaker.
