Unmanned Drones and "Collateral Damage" Drones have become a hallmark of the Obama Administration's assault against suspected terrorists all over the world, including in countries where the US is not officially at war. They're operated from a base in Nevada, and the President insists they accidentally kill fewer civilians than conventional airstrikes. But available numbers show it's exactly the other way around, and the White House has yet to make good on the promise to be more transparent. We hear what it's like to be on the "kill list, and talk to a former bomber pilot who's also operated drones.
Truth and Lies in Trumpland Donald Trump is using mis-information like no President has before him. It's an unprecedented challenge to the news media, and a potential threat to democracy. We hear how the "leader of all the people" is dividing Americans and confusing the rest of the world.

Management seems to be tone-deaf to a decline in service — and even abuse — of passengers.
