RAF Molesworth has parts leased out to the US. It has been revealed on publicly available job listings that the US military personnel have been working here, with ads for ‘target analyst’ and also private military contractors looking for a ‘video intelligence analyst’ to be based here. This close relation with the US questions the UK involvement and complicity in the US’s programs. If the US is conducting its military drone operations from an RAF base this would breach international laws states the human rights campaign group Reprieve. Jennifer Gibson states, ‘The US drone programme, conducted in the shadows, has killed hundreds of civilians without any accountability. The British Government has questions to answer over its own involvement in this secret war and how much responsibility it bears for those deaths.’
