Drones are being used in the "War On Terror" to avoid the potential for harm to US military personnel when they are sent into combat as "Boots on the ground." This documentary film explains the current success rate of the US drone warfare from the perspective of drone operators, US military officials, survivors of drone attacks, and journalists. What is it like being a drone operator? How accurate is the targeting of the drones? Is "assassination by drone" a morally defensible policy? Who else is using drones to hunt down and kill their enemies? Should the drone policy be changed, and if so, what would the changes consist of?
