Processing Distortion with Peter B. Collins: “America’s Illegal Drone Wars”

Peter B. Collins Presents Prof. Richard Falk

International law expert Richard Falk argues that armed drones are more dangerous than nuclear weapons. Sold to Americans as an efficient means of killing without risk to American lives, independent reports show that far more innocent people are killed than militant suspects. Falk offers his views on targeted assassination, and regards the drone killings of Americans like Anwar al-Awlaki as indictable offenses by President Obama. He also comments on the partial release of the Senate torture report.

*Richard Falk is professor emeritus of international law at Princeton, and served as UN Rapporteur for Palestine 2008-2014. His commentary on drones is featured in a new book, Drones and Targeted Killing, edited by law professor Marjorie Cohn. He is also author of the new book, Palestine, the Legitimacy of Hope.
