Interestingly, posted this information directly from the ACLU website last week to no response nor perhaps members bothering to read. Sunlight as you note may be the only way to get to the bottom of the continued drone wars. One step forward IMHO is the FAA as per yesterday attempting to begin to regulate privately owned drones who may well bring down an aircraft, flown by irresponsible individual.
Hope springs eternal and with a Congress who refuse to continue to fund both the purchases and continued replacement of the drones specifically used for killing such as the Predator, Reaper and Hellfire missals, et al. Repeated hope springs eternal since reality check regardless of Party, funding of all aspects of the MIC is guaranteed.
For readers, perhaps, interesting and long article from General Atomics, San
Diego, CA about the uses of their product. Infor not included in Scahill's expose.
