I expect to continue posting with regards to the Snowden case. This will not take the place of the ongoing discourse about drones, but I would like to point out that drones are only one example of a state policy that cannot remain unchallenged by vigilant citizens. Although, in keeping up with all of the developments concerning drones I have yet to really delve into an ugly history of US imperialism – the context within which policies like drone strikes become possible – it is impossible to ignore the obvious fact that drone strikes are a mere continuation of an existing trend and not an aberration. Expect to see something from me exploring the logic of drone strikes within that history in the near future.
