Brennan, drones, and war: a former drone operator speaks out
For the last several years, the Obama administration has been nearly silent about the military drone program which targets militants overseas. This week, the legal justification for drones and their use against American citizens offshore was leaked to NBC news. John Brennan, one of the architects of the program, was questioned about drones at the confirmation hearing for his new position as head of the CIA on Thursday. Brent spoke to Brandon Bryant, a former drone operator with the US air force for more than five years, about the human aspect of drone warfare. We reached him in Billings, Montana.
