Why We Are Walking to Hancock Air Force Base
Drone operators in Nevada mistakenly attacked, using an unmanned predator drone, a convoy of Afghan civilians. "No way to know — no way to tell from here" said the "pilot" and camera operator as they surveyed the carnage, 7,000 miles away, on the screen. Up to 23 people were killed and more wounded including women and children, according to an April 10 article in the Los Angeles Times. The tragedy highlights the legal, moral and practical problems with the use of drones.
