Highly Topical in Current Time Anyone questioning the ethics of drone use should read this authoritative and factual book. The proliferation of drone technology is well documented and the author touches on the ethical debate around remote extra-judicial killing. If Obama is ever tried for war crimes some of this book content will explain why.

M. D. Holley says:

Good debate; a little unbalanced Mixed views about this book. 

William Podmore says:

Useful study of drones Medea Benjamin analyses the companies producing drones, where they are used, who runs them and the legal and moral implications of their use.75 nations now possess drones, armed or not, but only the USA, Britain and Israel have used armed drones in war.UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Philip Alston, said, “Outside the context of armed conflict, the use of drones for targeted killing is almost never likely to be legal.”
