Again Chris Hayes was brilliant this weekend, and one of his focuses on his MSNBC morning show UP was the drone attacks and the possible harm they are doing to our reputation around the world, as well as to their inherent unfairness, illegality, etc.

But a terrific guest he interviewed, Clive Stafford Smith, pointed out that there are videos of the strikes themselves somewhere, as the pilots of the drones steer the bombs into the targets. Smith said that seeing the videos would give us a better appreciation for the harm being done, etc., and I sure agree with him. (Remember when we had an uproar about 6 years ago over Koppel's publishing the names of the dead in Iraq? Well, the curtain still hasn't been pulled back on what is being done in our name.)

To see highlights from Chris's excellent show from this weekend, go to http://upwithchrishayes.msnbc.msn.com/ and scroll down until you get to the Smith segment on drones. Or really check out the rest of the show too.

So would YOU like to see the videos of the drone attacks on civilians? I would.

Yours,

Caleb
