The American Civil Liberties Union is suing to get more information on the raid that killed Senior Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens.

The group wants records that show “legal basis and decision-making process used for the raid…as well as assessments of civilian deaths afterwards.”

The ACLU says the Trump administration’s explanation of the raid conflicts with human rights reports, news reports, and congressional assessments of the raid and therefore, lacks credibility.

The documents are necessary for public accountability.
