From America Abroad: The ethics of drone warfare has been making headlines recently, putting governments and policy makers on the defensive as they seek to justify long-distance targeted killings, collateral damage, and surveillance. But technologists and social entrepreneurs see great promise in drones for humanitarian aid and rescue operations, and they're hoping to shift public opinion toward a more tolerant view of these "eyes in the skies."
On this episode of America Abroad, we'll look at how drone technology is being used now, what could happen if it gets into the wrong hands, and how it might benefit the world if used by the right ones.
