In the wake of the Paris attack that killed 129, four former US Air Force drone operators wrote an open letter to the US president, his secretary of defence and the CIA director:
President Barack Obama
The White House
Secretary Ashton B. Carter
Department of Defense
Director John O. Brennan
Central Intelligence Agency
Dear President Obama, Secretary Carter and Director Brennan:
We are former Air Force service members. We joined the Air Force to protect American lives and to protect our Constitution. We came to the realization that the innocent civilians we were killing only fueled the feelings of hatred that ignited terrorism and groups like ISIS, while also serving as a fundamental recruitment tool similar to Guantanamo Bay. This administration and its predecessors have built a drone program that is one of the most devastating driving forces for terrorism and destabilization around the world.
