The Intercept has released a new series of documents – not from Edward Snowden – that provide extraordinary details about the Obama administration’s targeted killing operations (especially in Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia).
I haven’t had a chance to work through them yet – today is taken up with teaching and Eyal Weizman‘s visit for tonight’s Wall Exchange – but I imagine that readers who don’t already have their heads up will welcome a head’s up.
The reports include a considerable number of informative graphics (taken from briefing slides) together with analysis. Here is the full list:
The Assassination Complex (by Jeremy Scahill)
A visual glossary (by Josh Begley)
The Kill Chain (by Jeremy Scahill)
Find, Fix, Finish (by Jeremy Scahill)
Manhunting in the Hindu Kush (by Ryan Devereaux)
Firing Blind (by Cora Currier and Peter Maass)
The Life and Death of Objective Peckham (by Ryan Gallagher)
Target Africa (by Nick Turse)
More to come when I’ve worked through the reports, slides and analyses.
