Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

How secrecy and drones hijacked America's military and foreign policy.


The problem we had with Yemen is that the US tended to view the country only through US domestic counter-terrorism issues, and somewhere along the line, we lost the fact that this was a struggling, poor nation, with lots of radical factions, that needed a heck of a lot more stuff going on to stabilize it.

Journalist Chris Woods explains how drones hijacked US foreign policy – from our new military dependence on extrajudicial killings, to the CIA’s efforts to maintain the drone program at the cost of political stability abroad – and why secrecy fuels America’s newest global war.

Chris is author of the new book Sudden Justice: America’s Secret Drone Wars.
