Covert Drone War

The use of Predator and Reaper drones (unmanned flying vehicles that are often armed with video-guided missiles) by the US military and CIA is a largely untold story of the "Global War on Terror / Global Contingency Operation" - yet has caused thousands of deaths in Pakistan and Afghanistan, many of whom are women and children.

The Sickness Unto Death

by Chris Floyd 

Sick drones flying over our heads

Sick drones dropping ten tons of lead
Nobody controls the ghostly machine
Hacked and cracked, they still make the scene
The bombs go off, the babies are dead
Sick drones flying over our heads

War Drones Keep Flying Despite Computer Virus (NYT)
