Synopsis >

A parody video in which "President Obama" adopts the so-called Shaggy Defense -- just say it wasn't you - against charges he has killed thousands of civilians in illegal drone attacks around the world. The video -- from human rights charity Reprieve and Lush Cosmetics and produced by Don't Panic London. Parodying Shaggy's 2001 hit 'It Wasn't Me'. Featuring "President Obama", "Shaggy" and "a drone", the video is intended to raise awareness of Obama's ongoing illegal drones programme in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia -- all countries with which the US is not at war. Attacks in these countries have so far killed an estimated 4,700 people including children, while drones circle overhead 24/7 terrorising entire communities. UK companies and the UK government are complicit in the drone strikes through supplying material support and sharing intelligence.
