In Washington, the Kill Committee gathers in the White House’s
Situation Room to pick the next targets for the United States drone program. At
an airbase just outside Las Vegas, a team of pilots, military personnel, and
intelligence officers follow through on the committee’s orders, finding the men
who have been deemed a threat to national security and sentenced to death.
On the other side of the world, in the mountains where the
drones hunt their prey, someone has decided to fight back. And not just against
the unmanned planes that circle their skies, but against the Americans at home
who control them.
Richard Clarke not only remains an active and respected presence
within the national security community but also appears regularly as an expert
commentator for ABC and other media. His insider’s expertise is on full display
