The Drone Papers

From Nine To Noon, 9:35 am on 11 November 2015

The American news website, The Intercept, has published a tranche of documents revealing the inner workings of the United States' drone programme. The documents, leaked by an anonymous whistle-blower, make up a multi-part analysis of the drone programme by a Pentagon task force. They show almost 90 percent of people killed in drone strikes were not the intended target. Nine to Noon speaks to Andrew Cockburn, the Washington Editor of Harper's Magazine and author of Kill Chain: The Rise of the High-Tech Assassins.
