Andrew Cockburn - Kill Chain: The Rise of the High-Tech Assassins

Tuesday, March 10, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Not just another weapon, the drone has radically transformed military strategy. This did not happen overnight, and Cockburn, a veteran journalist and author of Rumsfeld, traces the development of drone warfare back to WWII. As he follows the early technology from its initial uses in Vietnam and its more sophisticated application by the Bush and Obama administrations, he shows how the weaponry has driven a single-minded focus on “high value targets.” (Holt)
