October 1st - CODE PINK / Medea Benjamin is a cofounder of both CODEPINK and the international human rights organization Global Exchange. Benjamin is the author of eight books. Her latest book is Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control, and she has been campaigning to stop the use of killer drones. Her direct questioning of President Obama during his 2013 foreign policy address, as well as her recent trips to Pakistan and Yemen, helped shine a light on the innocent people killed by US drone strikes.

CODEPINK is a women initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement that
seeks positive social change through proactive, creative protest and non-violent direct action.
Tonight, The Prime Directive Radio Show meets with Medea Benjamin, CODEPINK cofounder and author of Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control, to discuss the CODEPINK protest at the John Brennan confirmation hearing in the US Senate. Other topics include drone warfare, Obama's kill list, and the NDAA.
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.
Chapter 1: President addresses drones and Guantanamo
The president gave an hour speech today at National Defense University in which he signaled changes in the U.S. drone program and a renewed committment to close the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo. We will get a first hand account from Sam Marrero, a Middle East researcher who was in attendance. Then we'll hear from CodePink's Medea Benjamin who was also in attendance and managed to interrupt the president with her calls to close Guantanamo immediately. Then we'll hear from Gabor Rona of Human Rights First about how much we can expect from the administration going forward.
Chapter 2: Congress battles over just how far to expand visas for highly skilled immigrant workers.
As part of an immigration reform proposal, the U.S. Senate Judiciary committee called for an increase in H-1B visas, visas given to immigrants with high-tech skills, such as those in the so-called STEM fields. The issue is largely bi-partisan, with the Democratic led committee approving this increase… and, in fact, Republicans in the House of Representatives have called the increase insufficient and countered with the SKILLS Visa Act, expanding the program by another 30,000 visas. However, not everyone is happy Congress is likely to pass some kind of increase in the near future. My first guest on the issue says the call for more skilled immigrants is merely pre-text for companies to pay less for high-value labor.
