UG#706 - When Are Terrorists Not Terrorists? (States assassinating by drones)

02-04-2015 16:13

We focus on drone technology, looking at the relationship between language and law.

Plausible deniability is only needed if people are in a position where their actions are subject to informed questions. The core of this week's show is made up with a set of speeches from a 2015 meeting about the use of drone warfare, introduced by Bruce Gagnon and augmented by SAS whistleblower, Ben Griffin and a few classic words of Chris Hedges on how war affects its participants.
