REMOTE CONTROL WAR

08/17/2011

 
The technology, morality, legality and ethics of the multi-billion dollar business of robotic drones, and the future of war. Is the CIA developing a robot army? Yikes! Great documentary, not for the easily freaked-out, seeing that you (or our enemies) can DIY for under $300.
 
 
Fortunately the SLA made a ton of audio recordings which are the backbone of this fascinating even-handed documentary about the abduction of Patricia Hearst. The only way it could be better is if the subject submitted to an interview.  Thoughtful treatment of a significant event at a major turning point in our history.
