The CIA recently launched its first drone attack of 2012.
Three people in North Waziristan were killed.
If you haven’t yet heard of these Terminator-style US drones,
it is likely you will soon.
Their usage in surveillance,
modern warfare and covert ”counter-terrorism” measures is rapidly expanding.
Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles,
are the new face of the war on terror and the latest attempt by the United States to circumvent international law
in pursuit of its alleged enemies.
After failing to fulfil his promise to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay,
President Barack Obama spent New Year’s Eve signing the National Defense Authorisation Act (NDAA).
The NDAA codifies the indefinite detention,
of US citizens.
