A growing menace, robotic warfare has been used to murder hundreds of civilians in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen - and now may be coming to a Police Department near you.
"It's a way of waging war without putting U.S. lives at risk. It's a way of waging war without letting the American people know we're even at war. It's a way of waging war that lets the CIA and other secret organizations have control-don't even have to go to Congress. It's a tremendous abuse of executive power. And it's killing a lot of innocent civilians. And the American people need to know about it." -- Medea Benjamin
