"I no longer love blue skies": Drone strike victims testify before Congress (VIDEO)

Pakistani family testifies to empty room in Congress about US Drones that killed Granny.  US Congress doesn't give a damn about murdered innocents  (VIDEO)

A justice seeking journey of thousands of miles for the surviving members of a Pakistani family, who endured a CIA drone attack, has culminated in their testimony in front of US Congressmen.

The strike killed their grandmother, but failed to hit any militants - so the victims of the bombing asked lawmakers why their home was targeted in the first place.

RT's Gayane Chichyakyan was at the briefing.

Being one of the toughest opponents of America's drone warfare, US House of Representatives member Alan Grayson is the man behind the visit of the Rehman family to his country. Speaking to RT he said he believes the Pakistani army's completely capable of handling militants itself.
