This book, Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control, is written and signed by Global Exchange Co-Founder Medea Benjamin.
“In this remarkably cogent and carefully researched book, Medea Benjamin makes it clear that drones are not just another high-tech military trinket. Drone Warfare sketches out the nightmare possibilities posed by this insane proliferation.” —Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed
Weeks after the 2002 American invasion of Afghanistan, [Global Exchange Co-Founder] Medea Benjamin visited that country. There, on the ground, talking with victims..., she learned the reality behind the “precision bombs” on which U.S. forces were becoming increasingly reliant. Now, with the use of drones escalating at a meteoric pace, Benjamin has written this book as a call to action: “It is meant to wake a sleeping public,” she writes, “lulled into thinking that drones are good, that targeted killings are making us safer.”
