Leaked: ‘New Snowden‘ releases Obama’s drone program papers
15 October 2015
The documents were provided to The Intercept by a source within the US intelligence community who wished to remain anonymous because of the government’s aggressive prosecution of whistleblowers. The documents, slides, visuals and analysis have been posted by The Intercept on Thursday as “The Drone Papers.”
He says the American public has the right to know about the process by which people are placed on kill lists and assassinated on orders from US government officials.

The Drone Papers
Secret military documents expose the inner workings of Obama’s drone wars.
The following story was published today by The Intercept, a digital magazine dedicated to producing fearless, adversarial journalism that brings transparency and accountability to powerful institutions.
This is an excerpt from the first article in The Drone Papers series, produced by a team of Intercept reporters and researchers who spent months analyzing secret government documents. Read the rest of The Drone Papers here.
NEW YORK – The Intercept has obtained a cache of secret slides that provides a window into the inner workings of the U.S. military’s kill/capture operations at a key time in the evolution of the drone wars — between 2011 and 2013. The documents, which also outline the internal views of special operations forces on the shortcomings and flaws of the drone program, were provided by a source within the intelligence community who worked on the types of operations and programs described in the slides. The Intercept granted the source’s request for anonymity because the materials are classified and because the U.S. government has engaged in aggressive prosecution of whistleblowers. The stories in this series will refer to the source as “the source.”
The source said he decided to provide these documents to The Intercept because he believes the public has a right to understand the process by which people are placed on kill lists and ultimately assassinated on orders from the highest echelons of the U.S. government. “This outrageous explosion of watchlisting — of monitoring people and racking and stacking them on lists, assigning them numbers, assigning them ‘baseball cards,’ assigning them death sentences without notice, on a worldwide battlefield — it was, from the very first instance, wrong,” the source said.
