Film about America’s drone wars is Feb. 6 at UHH


A documentary about America’s drone wars in Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, at the University of Hawaii at Hilo in Room UCB 100.

The film, “Unmanned: America’s Drone Wars,” has footage of the deadly effects on civilians as the drones supposedly are targeting terrorists. Producers illustrate via video the targeting is imprecise and ineffective in its purpose, and the civilian deaths and suffering are very real.

A former American drone operator speaks about what he witnessed, Pakistani families mourn loved ones and speak of the devastating disruption of their lives from the terror and more than 70 separate interviewees speak about how the U.S. drone war policy is harming America’s interests.
