Kathy Kelly, co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence, discusses her article “The Ghost and the Machine” about the lack of accountability and morality in remote-control drone warfare; her recent visit to Afghanistan, where children are starving and freezing in refugee camps across the street from enormous, well-provisioned US military bases; the myth of humanitarian wars; and the coming arms race in unmanned drone aircraft.
