The Great American Killing Machine

Journalist Jeremy Scahill condemns the killing of  16-year–old Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, an American citizen assassinated in a C.I.A. drone strike in Yemen last year, as well as   other targeted assassinations under President Obama.  Scahill also points out  the increased prosecutions of whistleblowers under the Espionage Act, increased warrantless spying, harassment of journalists, and the passive acceptance of these policies  by Americans of both major political parties.
