Mr. President: With Joe on leave, Abe looks at the 7-decade growth of executive power in the U.S.

The current administration has enshrined and deepened the surveillance state first ushered in under the auspices of the Cold War and the War on Drugs, and then imposed under G.W.

Drone Warfare, The Cost of War and Killer Hummingbirds

program date:

Brian also suspects the drones are making war more likely by lowering the cost for war, making it easier to chose war.
