Joystick Warfare: The Legality and Morality of Combat Drones

A talk by
PAUL GEORGE
Director, Peninsula Peace and Justice Center

Washington doesn't like to talk about its use of military drones very much. No wonder: they just might be illegal under U.S. and international law. To say nothing of the Administration's so-called “targeted killing” program and its insistence that even US citizens are legitimate targets of warfare from afar.

In this forum, we'll take a look at the US drone program: Where and how often are drones being used to launch missiles? Who are the targets? And who is actually being killed by the drones? Most importantly, we'll ask the question: Should the United States be using combat drones?
