Challenging the US Drone Programme

AlJazeera Stream

Pakistan has called for an end to drone attacks inside the country but says the US is not listening.

President Barack Obama maintains the programme is targeted and doesn’t cause ‘a huge number of civilian casualties.’

In this episode, we speak with Shahzad Akbar, an attorney representing drone victims in a criminal case against US officials, and Christine Fair, assistant professor at Georgetown University’s Center for Peace and Security Studies, who argues that drones are the best option currently available.

What do you think? Will Akbar’s efforts help end drone attacks? Send us your thoughts and comments on Facebook or Twitter using hashtag #AJStream.
