WBEZ | Just Foreign Policy http://www.wbez.org/tags/just-foreign-policy Latest from WBEZ Chicago Public Radio en Drones and Warfare http://www.wbez.org/series/chicago-amplified/drones-and-warfare-105860 <p><p>American Friends Service Committee and Chicago Area Peace Action will co-sponsor an event with <strong>Robert Namain</strong>, the policy director for Just Foreign Policy, who will talk about his recent trip to Pakistan and on the policy of targeted assassination and drone warfare. This is a subject very pertinent to current foreign policy: the U.S. has pointed to the use of drones as a way to save money and U.S. lives, but it has terrible moral implications, as the many civilian deaths in Afghanistan and Pakistan have made clear. AFSC and Peace Action will be embarking upon a national campaign to end use of drones, and this is an excellent opportunity to hear eyewitness testimony and expert analysis before joining these efforts.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><div class="image-insert-image "><img alt="" class="image-original_image" src="http://www.wbez.org/system/files/styles/original_image/llo/insert-images/AFSC-webstory_5.jpg" title="" /></div><p>Recorded live Thursday, January 17, 2013 at DePaul University.&nbsp;</p></p> Thu, 17 Jan 2013 09:58:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/series/chicago-amplified/drones-and-warfare-105860
