Scott Shane - Objective Troy: A Terrorist, a President, and the Rise of the Drone

Saturday, September 26, 2015 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Shane is a veteran New York Times national security reporter and the story he tells defines the technology, politics, and moral challenge of the war on terrorism. His book chronicles dual transformations, charting how the American imam Anwar al-Awlaki first called for moderation after 9/11, then for jihad, even as Obama, after initially rejecting Bush’s policies, embraced the use of drones in targeted killings. The two narratives meet when both feed into the country’s intensive hunt for al-Awlaki and his eventual assassination.
