Drone War Exposed: Jeremy Scahill on U.S. Kill Program\u0026#039;s Secrets \u0026amp; the Whistleblower Who Leaked ThemOne of the most secretive military campaigns in U.S. history is under the microscope like never before. In a major exposé based on leaked government documents, The Intercept has published the most in-depth look at the U.S. drone assassination program to date. \u0022The Drone Papers\u0022 exposes the inner workings of the U.S. military’s assassination program in Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia, revealing a number of flaws and far more casualties than the intended targets. The documents were leaked to The Intercept by an unnamed U.S. intelligence source who says he wanted to alert Americans to wrongdoing. We are joined by The Intercept’s Jeremy Scahill, lead author of the exposé, \u0022The Drone Papers.\u0022\u0022The Drone Papers\u0022 Reveals How Faulty Intel \u0026amp; Secret \u0022Kill Chain\u0022 Mark Suspects, Civilians for DeathThe Intercept series \u0022The Drone Papers\u0022 exposes the inner workings of how the drone war is waged, from how targets are identified to who decides to kill. They expose a number of flaws, including that strikes have resulted in large part from electronic communications data, or \u0022signals intelligence,\u0022 that officials acknowledge is unreliable. We speak to Intercept reporter Cora Currier, whose article \u0022The Kill Chain,\u0022 reveals how the U.S. identifies and selects assassination targets, from the collection of data and human intelligence all the way to President Obama’s desk.The Longest U.S. War, Prolonged: After Vowing Afghan Pullout, Obama Extends Occupation IndefinitelyPresident Obama has reversed plans to withdraw most U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the time he leaves office. On Thursday, Obama said a deteriorating security situation will force him to maintain the current deployment of 9,800 soldiers through 2016. When Obama’s term ends in 2017, the U.S. will keep at least 5,500 troops at four bases across Afghanistan. After 14 years of war, the Taliban now holds more of Afghanistan than at any point since the 2001 U.S. invasion, and some estimates put them in control of half the country. President Obama’s announcement comes nearly a year after he declared an official end to the U.S. combat mission, though U.S. military operations have continued. The move assures that despite previous pledges, the war will continue under his successor. We are joined by Intercept reporters Jeremy Scahill, Ryan Devereaux and Cora Currier, whose new series \u0022The Drone Papers\u0022 includes a detailed look at the drone war in Afghanistan based on government leaks.
