Chris Woods, documentary producer and freelancer for The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, discusses his article “Drone War Exposed – the complete picture of CIA strikes in Pakistan;” the government’s general agreement with the total killed in drone strikes, and vehement disagreement about whether those people were civilians; how the Raymond Davis scandal soured the Pakistani government’s cooperation; how US government officials challenge the study’s methodology and conclusions in the media while hiding behind a veil of anonymity; and the devastation injuries of those “lucky” enough to survive a drone strike.
