The US’s extrajudicial killings roll on in secrecy and scandal. “Obama said that he ended these things, and yet he’s continuing them, but by proxy,” Nation correspondent Jeremy Scahill says. “There’s been tweaks to the machine, but in general many of the policies that liberals were outraged about under Bush have continued under Obama, just with a kind of rebranding.” Scahill appears on All In with Chris Hayes to discuss the story of Anwar al-Awlaki, the US’s global battlefield and his new book, Dirty Wars.
