The collective says it produced the work in the hope that U.S. drone operators will see the human face of their victims in a region that has been the target of frequent strikes.

  7. Death By Metadata : Jeremy Scahill & Glenn Greenwald Reveal NSA Role in Assassinations Overseas [full video at link] — http://www.democracynow.org/2014/2/10/death_by_metadata_jeremy_scahill_glenn

    In the first exposé for their new venture, First Look Media’s [https://www.firstlook.org/] digital journal The Intercept [https://twitter.com/the_intercept], investigative journalists Jeremy Scahill and Glenn Greenwald reveal the National Security Agency is using complex analysis of electronic surveillance, rather than human intelligence, as the primary method to locate targets for lethal drone strikes.

    The NSA identifies targets based on controversial metadata analysis and cellphone tracking technologies, an unreliable tactic that has resulted in the deaths of innocent and unidentified people. The United States has reportedly carried out drone strikes without knowing whether the individual in possession of a tracked cellphone or SIM card is in fact the intended target of the strike.

  8. US Suspect Possibly Targeted for Drone Attack

    The CIA drones watching him cannot strike because he’s a U.S. citizen and the Justice Department must build a case against him, a task it hasn’t completed.

    Four U.S. officials said the American suspected terrorist is in a country that refuses U.S. military action on its soil and that has proved unable to go after him. And President Barack Obama’s new policy says American suspected terrorists overseas can only be killed by the military, not the CIA, creating a policy conundrum for the White House.

  9. A US drone strike in Yemen has taken the life of another civilian, according to Reuters. This latest death, a month after a drone killed 15 members of a Yemeni wedding convoy, comes just as the US Congress is debating a spending bill that contains hidden details of the future of the US drone program.

    A secret provision in the $1.1 trillion, 1,500-page spending bill passed by the House on Wednesday keeps lethal counterterrorism operations under the umbrella of the CIA, instead of shifting control to the Pentagon, which would provide more transparency.
