Description
When the US government discusses drone strikes publicly, it offers assurances that such operations are a more precise alternative to troops on the ground, but the implicit message from the administration has been trust, but don't verify. The online magazine The Intercept obtained a cache of secret slides that provide a window into the inner workings of the US militarys kill/capture operations in Afghanistan, Yemen, and Somalia, and show assassination to be central to US counterterrorism policy. This campaign, carried out by two presidents through four presidential terms, has been deliberately obscured from the public-- until now.
