Antiwar Radio: Sheldon Richman

Sheldon Richman, senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation, discusses his article “Drone Warfare Is Fraught with Danger;” setting a new “Libya precedent” of cheap and easy regime change with US drones in the air and indigenous fighters on the ground; forgetting the quick “victories” in Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003 that later went sour; the case for impeaching Barack Obama for violating the War Powers Act; why a commander in chief less removed from the field of battle might not conduct warfare so casually; and why the US is severely tempting fate (and blowback) by conducting such an aggressive and violent foreign policy.
