The President of the United States Donald trump gave the CIA the authority to use drones for air strikes on terrorism suspects.
This writes the Ukrainian Pravda with reference to The Wall Street Journal.
As writes the edition, this will be a transition from the policy of the administration of former U.S. President Barack Obama, limiting the military role of the CIA.
During the presidency of Barack Obama, the CIA used drones and reconnaissance to detect suspected terrorists. But strikes are, in turn, caused the U.S. armed forces. The limit was introduced for more transparency as the Pentagon is obliged to disclose information on results of operations, and the CIA – no.
The US was the first who started to use equipped with bombs drones for attacks against terrorists after the terrorist attack of September 11 .
Critics of applying targeted air strikes raise the question as to whether such impacts are more militants than they kill. They refer to the increase of jihadi organisations and militant attacks around the world as proof that the targeted airstrikes may aggravate the problem.
In July, the U.S. government took responsibility for murder on imprudence to 116 civilians in the countries where the US is not at war.
