Skip to comments.Pakistani drone victim suing United States
Posted on 12/25/2010 6:46:22 AM PST by 4Runner
In June, Philip Alston, the independent U.N. investigator on extrajudicial killings, urged the United States to lay out rules and safeguards, publish figures on civilian casualties and prove it has tried other ways to capture or incapacitate suspects without killing them.

Dead people can’t sue...
I’m not saying.. I am just saying..

We can always settle by sending over a waaahhhmmmbulance.
I say to the UN, go to hell.
I assume Gloria Allred be taking cases.
Be a real shame if we “accidentally” bombed the UN.Much like we “accidentally” bombed the French embassy in Libiya after we were denied fly-over rights.
Every day is April Fools at the UN
A government agent killing somebody without the target having been sentenced to death by a court. Since the death penalty is effectively abolished as far as the UN is concerned, any time US forces kill terrorists, it's an "extrajudicial killing"
Does that mean that all 3000+ 911 victims and their families can sue the Saudi wahabbi princes, PLO, the governments of Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Libya for financing the fanatics who perpetrated the attacks?
Didn’t think so.
Their estates can. To my knowledge such a lawsuit would not be allowed in a U.S. court. Acts of war performed by the U.S. military are immune from judicial review by U.S. civilian courts. If someone else thinks they have jurisdiction, welcome aboard, just try to collect. What are they going to do, indict Obama?
Think if the same standards the U.N. is proposing had been applied to the bombing of Germany or Japan. Forget about Hiroshima. I am not criticizing either campaign, by the way.
Global justice.. Harvard. He must be one of them intellectual fellas.. you know. He can express Marxist feeeeeeeeeeeeeeelings in his own words.
Source is wiki graffiti but maybe it's valid information.
How about we sue Pakistan for turning out so many terrorists?
Actually I recall reading about a lawsuit filed by the families of the 911 victims, as plaintiffs, naming the governments of Saudi Arabia and/or Egypt as defendants, in a class action wrongful death suit. Haven’t seen or heard anything about it in awhile though.
These days we are much too nice and everyone should be damn glad we are only killing innocent victims who are either humping or hugging the target
What? He’s going to drone on and on?
Give him a helmet and tickets for the short bus.
That’s where drones belong.

The Wahabbis and Muslim Brotherhood, as well as the governments of Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, all privided financial and logistical support for these genocidal fanatics.
They *ALL* should be sued into penury.
*ALL* Mosques in the U.S. should be taxed at 100% of their intake until all the multiple billions of dollars in damages to lifa nd property are paid.
Millions die as U.N. watches, does nothing.
I believe the gentleman's name is Romeo Dallaire a general officer in the Canadian armed forces who has exposed the U.N. "peacekeepers" as worthless (my word). General Dallaire is just one of many.
This Alston guy and his U.N. sinecure should worry about "justice" and the millions of victims of the U.N.
He has a point. Perhaps we could take out a newspaper advertisement:
Terrorists, Islamic Extremists, Rapists, Thugs, and other Haters of America who Donated to and then Illegally Voted For Obama - You are invited to surrender at the American Embassy any Monday through Friday from 9:00 am through 3:30 pm to avoid the necessity for extrajudicial killings that may put those who associate with scum like you in danger. Please do not surrender on weekends, as staffing is limited, or after 3:30 in the afternoon as your processing may not be completed by the end of the standard work day and we would prefer to avoid paying overtime.
Would that make these lawyers happy?
Well, the dead can’t sue but their surviving relates through the decedents’ estate can, if I remember correctly. Regardless, I don’t think sharia law covers that. I was the impression that they had the right to kill all infidels, regardless of innocence or guilt (no guilt here as far as I know). So they’ll do what they always do, declare jihad and have at it. Meanwhile, we need several hundred more drones do the dirty work that our allies, the beloved pakistanis, won’t do.
Alston's reports to the UN relating to extrajudicial executions also deal with broad thematic issues that arise in many countries, such as witchcraft and vigilante killings, national-level commissions of inquiry dealing with unlawful killings, the problem of prisoners running prisons, the importance of witness protection programs, the problem of governmental reprisals against individuals or groups who have cooperated with a UN human rights inquiry, the need to regulate the use of lethal force by law enforcement officers, shoot-to-kill policies....
This last has been made possible by Congress refusing to "declare war" wherever we deploy the U.S. military. So our military is always and perennially engaged in "police actions", subject to all of the limitations domestic law enforcement encounters on a daily basis. We are doing this to ourselves.
Maybe he should sue his tribal leaders for putting him in danger. That would be the lawsuit I would love to see, Some idiot cleric who supports terrorists being dragged into a real court. If they want to put the United States on trial, why not put their beliefs on trial.
How can the OIC controlled “UN” intervene in this or any other Islamic issue when the US (using Israel as an example of their objectivity) will clearly be the losers?
ARTICLE from the past
U.S.9/11 Victims’ Families Sue Saudis
“Some 600 family members of Sept. 11 victims filed a trillion-dollar lawsuit Thursday against the Sudanese government and Saudi officials, banks and charities, charging they financed Osama bin Laden’s network and the attacks on America.
But the suit also is therapeutic for relatives of the victims, who acknowledge they face long odds of collecting anything. “
> U.S.9/11 Victims Families Sue Saudis
That was *SIX* years ago!
So, how did it turn out?
My guess is nothing at all came of it.
The Saudis are still funding genocidal fanatics, and the mosques and madrassas that breed them, all over the world.
Nothing at all should come of any lawsuit against the US for defending itself, either.
Thanks for checking that out.
The problem is that we no longer have any politicians with balls.....hmm?
Since the UN is largely a muslim org, they have lots of NYU red dope diaper baby ACLU lawyers ready to sue the US.
Eric holders firm representing?
Interesting bio. Actually he’s an Aussie, with a politician brother, who has gone international and currently is a law professor at NYU.
I see a parallel to Julian Assange, who is also an Aussie who has made global anti-Americanism his career choice.
Let me see.
Middle Eastern Terrorists flew airplanes into 3 buildings, a 4th crashed in a field and WE (the US Taxpayer), paid the families of the survivors so, in effect, they wouldn’t sue.
In retaliation, we launched a ‘War on Terror’ on those we deemed responsible - and those that ‘support’ them logistically - and now WE (the US Taxpayer), will be paying ‘reparations’ to the families etc.
Good thing Tibbetts and his ‘Enola Gay’ crew were not under the auspices of the UN.... can just see them being hauled into Court and this limp wristed govt of our NOT even paying for their defense.
Sweeney and the ‘Bockscar’ crew would have been marched off for execution upon landing.....
It’s called lawfare for these very reasons.
