  1. Australia: Drone Shadows, Diagrams, and Political Systems | booktwo.org

    Great, measured piece by James on Arts Queensland’s last-minute banning of his artwork, and authorities’ embarrassment over drones. “The Drone Shadow is not just a picture of a drone. It is a diagram of a political system.”

  2. Killing Our Citizens Without Trial by David Cole | The New York Review of Books

    On drone killings: “As long as the Obama administration insists on the power to kill the people it was elected to represent — and to do so in secret, on the basis of secret legal memos — can we really claim that we live in a democracy ruled by law?”

  3. Predators and Robots at War by Christian Caryl | The New York Review of Books

    “The US Air Force now trains more UAV operators each year than traditional pilots.” “There are already more [military] robots operating on the ground (15,000) than in the air (7,000).” “…a pilotless aircraft … ‘has the same rights as if a person were inside it, … official policy.’”
