Apple Removes Crude App Monitoring U.S. Assassination Drone Strikes

New York, September 30 (RHC)-- U.S. multinational technology company Apple has removed an app which covers airstrikes the United States launches throughout the world by its terror drones.  Apple said the application is “objectionable” and “crude,” Sputnik reported early Wednesday. 

The app, formerly called "Drone+", sends notifications when strikes are launched and shows their locations on the map.  Apple constantly rejected Drone+, arguing it was “not useful or entertaining enough.” 

Last year, the application emerged again under a new name, Metadata+, but the app store removed it again after six months due to its “excessively crude or objectionable content.”  

The app does not provide any graphic material or release information on the victims but refers users to media reports over the matter.  This is while apps, in which you can control drones to kill specified targets, have always been available.  The application still works on iOS devices but cannot be downloaded by new users. 

Washington has used its unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to carry out attacks against targets in Afghanistan and a number of other Muslim countries including Somalia, Yemen, and Pakistan.  Reports suggest a great percentage of the victims are civilians. 

The U.S. has been identified as the world’s number one user of “targeted killings” by the United Nations and human rights groups.
