FROM THIS EPISODE

Unmanned drones will be commonplace in the wars of the future. The Obama Administration is already ahead of the game. Richard Clarke advised three former presidents and helped develop the drone program. Is his latest novel, Sting of the Drone, a cautionary tale, or a defense of remote-control killing? Also, Putin's China-Russia gas deal. On today's Talking Point, California won't produce a "black gold mine" of oil after all.
