Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Global Exchange and Code Pink for Peace, is the author of the new book Drone Warfare: Killing By Remote Control. Gary Chew reviews Woody Allen's latest, To Rome With Love.Benjamin has done an excellent job researching the drone industry, and particularly the impact of our drone strikes on the target countries.  We talk about the revelations of the "process" used to identify people for the kill list, the roles of Eric Holder, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Leon Panetta in promoting the use of drones and the secrecy surrounding the program.  We also talk about the impact of these lethal remote control killings on the young military crews that wage war from an air conditioned room at Creech AFB in Nevada.  Benjamin also encourages you to be an activist on this important issue, and connect at DroneWatch.org

At about 47 minutes in, Gary Chew tells us about the new Woody Allen flick.
