Obama's Drone Presidency

Obama’s use of drone warfare is a key conflict in any progressive support for the president. And as the number of civilian casualties mounts, our nation’s “kill list” only grows longer. Nation contributor Allison Kilkenny and Nation editor-at-large Chris Hayes join Melissa Harris-Perry to debate the unprecedented extrajudicial killings under President Obama. As Harris-Perry points out, drones aren’t the only way the American government is killing American citizens—just look to communities of color in our own backyard.
