"Drone Warfare: Panacea or Pandora’s Box?”
The recent Justice Department memo arguing the legality and rationality of United States’ drone warfare has again raised the thorny issue of using modern technology for preemptive purposes. From human rights to the sovereignty of nations to international law, drone warfare has major implications for US foreign policy. What precedence is the United States setting? What, if any, blowback might the US face in response to its continued use of drones internationally? Will it hamper the effectiveness of our foreign policy and further damage our image abroad? Panelists: Dr. Christopher Swift, Adjunct Professor of National Security Studies at Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, Fellow at Center For National Security Law University of Virginia School of Law; Alfred Elkins, The Center for Applied Strategic Excellence. Moderated by Sara Sorcher, correspondent for National Journal.
