9/10 William Arkin: Unmanned: Drones, Data, and the Illusion of Perfect Warfare

September 10, 2015

National Security journalist William Arkin author of Unmanned: Drones, Data, and the Illusion of Perfect Warfareexplains the growth of the global intelligence network supporting modern warfare and spying. The global hunt for information. The shifting calculus of unmanned war. How drone warfare has made border meaningless. The “Deep State” and the Obama Administration. The Homeland Security mistake. The fusion of domestic and international surveillance and the problem with the phrase “war on”.

On The Fun Half: Glenn Beck says that Louie Gohmert sent him an email saying he might resign over the Iran deal. The Patriots were not the first Football team to tape other teams and we have proof. What the Republicans want to do to Social Security. What does a corruption probe that has already led to the resignation of the CEO of United Airlines have to do with Chris Christie? Donald Trump says that the Obama Administration failed on the Iran deal and says they will not “Read Art of the Deal”. Jeb Bush continues to bore during his appearance on Stephen Colbert.
