Drones are “the most effective” weapon the US has in the war against terrorism, and while collateral damage does occur, “propaganda” makes it seem far worse than it actually is, according to former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell. Discussing a wide range of national security issues, including Iraqi WMDs and the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, the former spy told RT’s Ben Swann that UAVs are more accurate than any other weapon the US could be using, and their use is an unfortunate necessity.
Congress on Tuesday debated expanding body cam use to police forces nationwide, but struggled to find solutions for issues ranging from funding to FOIA requests. While many called for more money to solve the issue of police brutality, others pushed back, saying that throwing funds at an issue will not fix it. RT’s Anya Parampil is on Capitol Hill with more.
