The Secret Drone War - Panorama

Jane Corbin visits Waziristan in Pakistan's north-west, a region which has become the regular target of perhaps the defining weapon of 21st-century warfare: the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, widely known as the drone. Barack Obama has proved especially keen on the CIA-directed use of drones to target and kill militants, and understandably so: the machines enable the pursuit of the enemy at no risk to American personnel. However, the drones are no less prone to causing innocent deaths than aircraft piloted by humans, and some victims are now seeking redress in British courts. Andrew Mueller
