Drone operators: Glorified murderers, NSA whistleblower, Julian Assange hit piece

Abby Martin goes over the testimony of a former drone operator responsible for taking part in over 1,600 targeted assassinations and examines why a majority of Americans continue to support the use of drones despite their low success rate. Then Michael Ratner, attorney for Julian Assange and president of the Center for Constitutional Rights, talks about a new documentary entitled ‘We Steal Secrets’ and how it offers an unfair portrayal of Assange & WikiLeaks. Finally, a closer look at individual behind the NSA leak, Edward Snowden, and we speak with Firedoglake journalist Kevin Gosztola about the media coverage of the leak, Snowden’s motivations, and the larger implications on privacy.
