A Good Discussion on Drones

I’m still trying to catch up with my various news programs (working with very limited internet for the next few weeks), but I caught this good discussion about Drone Policy on UP With Chris Hayes. All of the guests are good, but Hina Shamsi and Jeremy Scahill come across best (in the second segment), in my opinion. I’m particularly disappointed with the Democrat that was quoted as saying, basically, “Well, it’s ok because it’s a Democratic president, and I’d think differently if it was a Republican president…”

Good plug for Scahill’s upcoming book, too, which I’m very much looking forward to. (I still need to read Blackwater, mind you…)
