Did you know that a drone can be as small as a bumble bee, that local law enforcement offices are eager to be the first to have their own fleet of drones here in the US and that Obama has granted the CIA the authority to kill people in Pakistan and Yemen using drone “signature strikes” based solely on suspicious behavior?
Medea Benjamin’s new book: Drone Warfare, Killing by Remote Control is a well-researched investigation of these deadly weapons and how we can build a movement to stop them.
As Tom Hayden says in his blog:
After reading Medea Benjamin’s Drone Warfare, Killing by Remote Control, I can only wish she will invest more time in writing and less time getting arrested, because there are so few activists with her gifts of research, analysis and communication. But she wouldn’t be Medea without being arrested and pepper-sprayed in one front or another, because she is a true witness in both the Quaker moral sense and as a seeing journalist in the thick of things.
