Video News by NewsLook

Kai Bird, Pulitzer Prize–winning author and biographer of nuclear physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, warns that the United States is setting a dangerous precedent with its use of military drones, and that the technology could proliferate quickly. Drone technology, he says, is simple.
