Jeremy Scahill: Inside the US Dirty War in Yemen

In May, the United States confirmed that it has killed a total of four US citizens in drone strikes overseas. In his new book, Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield, Nation national security correspondent Jeremy Scahill explores one of the most unjust of these deaths, that of 16-year-old Abdulrahman Al-Awlaki, killed by a drone in Yemen.

In this Democracy Now! exclusive, Scahill joins Nasser al-Awlaki, the father of Anwar al-Awlaki and the grandfather of Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, to discuss the lack of justice that he has seen for the US government’s killing his son in a targeted assasination and his grandson in a drone strike.
