9/12/18 Christina Goldbaum on the U.S. Drone War in Somalia

by | Sep 14, 2018 | Interviews | 1 comment

Journalist Christina Goldbaum gives an update on the U.S. drone bombings in Somalia, which have increased over the last year under President Trump. Godbaum explains that President Obama enforced relatively strict rules for drone strikes in Somalia, but Trump has now relaxed them, leading to more strikes and more civilian casualties. Of course, as with America’s many other drone wars, the bombing does little to increase stability or dissuade the rebel groups, and may even embolden them and increase their numbers.
