Military drones have revolutionized warfare in the 21st century. Unmanned aerial vehicles, or U.A.V.s, allow the Air Force to monitor and neutralize targets remotely, keeping pilots and comrades in enemy territory safer in the process. Central to the U.S. counterterrorism campaign since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, models such as the Predator and Global Hawk have been used in Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen, among other areas in the Middle East and Africa purported to have terrorist activity. This book follows the development of U.S. drone policy, documenting the effects on U.S. forces, foreign relations, and the legal and ethical concerns of covert, remote airstrikes.
