Drone escalation in Libya

This video says about itself:

Daniel Ellsberg speaks for the first time on the imposition of a No Fly Zone in Libya. And activists are planning events around the globe to protest the US government’s treatment of Army Private Bradley Manning. The country remains divided on the question of whether Manning is a patriot or a traitor, for allegedly turning over secret files to Julian Assange’s WikiLeaks site. Daniel Ellsberg who famously leaked the Pentagon Papers joins the show.

From the National Journal in the USA today:

President Obama has approved the use of armed Predator drones to take out targets in Libya, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Thursday.

Yeah right.

The same drones that kill so many civilians in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The Obama administration has joined Britain and France in a major escalation of the war against Libya that entails the deployment of US drones, intensified bombing and the preparation of an invasion force: here.
