Eyes in the Sky

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

Aerial drones have be­come a fix­ture of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. With their abil­ity to con­duct sur­veil­lance and de­liver in­creas­ingly lethal pay­loads, they have changed the na­ture of war and be­come the envy of mil­i­taries around the world. But their use has also prompted a de­bate over their ap­pli­ca­tion for sur­veil­lance in the United States.

This ar­ti­cle is part of an oc­ca­sional look at the ex­pand­ing use of drones and the re­sult­ing im­pli­ca­tions for govern­ment, in­dus­try and civil­ians.
