John Oliver breaks down the United States' troubling drone program

New, 58 comments

The government's unwillingness (or inability) to clarify all of this can make the entire situation fairly muddled, so this weekend John Oliver tried to trudge through it all. In the latest of his long and pointed segments, Oliver sorts out just how troubling the US drone program is. "When children from other countries are telling us that we've made them fear the sky," he says, "it might be time to ask some hard questions."
