NYU student Josh Begley is tweeting every reported U.S. drone strike since 2002, and the feed highlights a disturbing tactic employed by the U.S. that is widely considered a war crime.

Known as the "double tap," the tactic involves bombing a target multiple times in relatively quick succession, meaning that the second strike often hits first responders.

A 2007 report by the Homeland Security Institute called double taps a "favorite tactic of Hamas"

In about 85 years drones will be self-aware.

Late last year they were already overriding manual commands given to them.

 Quoting: The Tauremini


I thought "double tap" was the Israeli tactic of hitting the door of a building (to seal it) then the building. The US used that one on a Red Cross shelter in Baghdad early in the first gulf war.

So what does the NYU student do with this evidence of criminal activity? Who hears it? Who has standing to complain about it? How does a student accuse a nation of war crimes?

If the drone is capable of overriding manual commands, who is the criminal when the drone does a crime?

Are we going to have to jail these things? They will only share their tricks and turn on us when they get out.

Good question (who's responsible if the drone overrides a command and strikes a civilian).

Very good question.

The U.S. does the same thing with bombs,a second explosion from the same bomb to kill rescue workers.
