A special one-hour episode on drones and U.S. foreign policy. First we talk to Medea Benjamin, the co-founder of Codepink about the use of drones and the president's speech in which he called for scaling back of the drone program. Medea's most recent book is entitled  Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control, though she is probably now best known for her interruption of President Obama. Then we get more from Claire Finkelstein, Professor of Law and Professor of Philosophy, University of Pennsylvania Law School. Claire writes on - among other things - the law and ethics of war and edited Targeted Killings: Law & Mortality in an Asymmetrical World.
