Did you know that drones . . .

·      can cost $28 million? The Airforce has 60 and hopes to have 330.

·      are used for targeted killing in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, and Pakistan with no legal basis for defining the scope of the area where drones can and cannot be used, no rigorous criteria for deciding which people will be targeted for killing, no procedural safeguards to ensure the legality and accuracy of the killings, and no mechanisms of accountability.

·      are killing civilians, Americans, non-Americans, adults, children.

·      are being produced to spy on U.S. citizens.

Nick Mottern is a journalist and member of Knowdrones. He is currently on tour with a model drone, having conversations with folks across the country about the financial or moral costs of drones.
