This is a very informative discussion that should be shared with those who don't get this kind of information from corporate news platforms. Of course, those who benefit from these Orwellian practices do actually run the narrative fed to corporate media so it is what it is. Was glad to hear that reality was also discussed by itself regarding the complicity in keeping this issue and it's application in it's entirety from the eyes and ears of the American citizens of the United States of America. As well and considering that the use of the term "Drone" is waking up folks to the issue we should expect Frank Luntz type shenanigans whereas the msm spin what little they do discuss about them into other language as was also discussed. They don't want them called drones anymore. Or so recommends the party in the discussion defending the application and targeting used with these machines, Christopher Jenks of the SMU Dedman School of Law. Christopher is an Assistant Professor and Director of the Criminal Justice Clinic there.

Would be hard pressed to find any discussion of this sort any place on the airwaves. I especially admire Ray McGovern's defense of the fifth amendment. Very few make the case in a manner such as he does in this discussion. Was also pleased to hear him repeat his oath to defend the Constitution in the direction of the side defending these killing machines and their master minds. Very eloquent on his part the way he placed it into context. Code Pink's Medea Benjamin added commentary in support of making more people aware of the issue and also presented the case that this is in no way consitutional focusing more on the targeting and killing of citizens as well as the secrecy in these lists of universities and other institutions who have these things.

Please spread far and wide.

So much for warrants. And from the msm? Crickets chirping. Not a peep.

Although RT did thankfully do a segment on it which picks up at the 23:06 mark in the following

Obama announces restrictions on drone strikes, pledges to close Gitmo (http://rt.com/usa/holder-obama-us-drone-694/)

This is one of the more thorough articles I've read on the subject. Sharing this here since the original post in this thread contains video of discussion with Medea Benjamin on the subject who ironically was the only one with the stones to speak up during the most recent screed before being escorted out.
