Antiwar Radio: Nick Mottern

Nick Mottern, director of Consumers for Peace, discusses his article Lobbying Report: Drones Fly Through Congress to Enter US Skies; the technical differences of flying drones in the clear skies of Afghanistan versus the heavily trafficked air corridors in the US; the surefire trickle-down of military technology to civilian law enforcement agencies; the impersonal experience of a remote pilot whether he is shooting missiles at Pakistanis or playing guard dog along the Canada and Mexico borders; and why drones are not going to win any wars in Asia, even though they are cheap and easy to operate.
