Dan Klaidman: How Obama Learned To Kill

The latest Op-Video, the 6th for Newsweek and The Daily Beast, features author and reporter Daniel Klaidman giving a provocative primer and his position on drone strikes, possibly the Obama Administration’s most favored tool in the continuing, perhaps neverending, war on terror. We made the film to coincide with the release of his new book on Obama’s foreign policy, Kill or Capture: The War on Terror and the Soul of the Obama Presidency It was a very unsettling topic to take on, and a provocative one. I hope this video provokes as much discussion as the issue deserves. As Klaidman says, it has been shrouded in secrecy for far too long.
