The United Nations denies targeting America and Israel, but an investigator has launched a study of drone attack impacts in the very same nations the U.S. has reportedly used the technology: Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Palestinian territories and Somalia.
"There is a need for accountability and reparation where things have gone badly wrong," said Bem Emmerson, a U.N. special rapporteur and a British lawyer, according to the report.
Still, Mr. Emmerson said, the U.N. study is aimed at 51 nations, not just America.
