What Exactly Is Happening with US Drone Strikes Overseas?


A New York University interactive telecommunications graduate student Josh Begley, 28, broke down the drone issue in the above video in a way you may not have heard, yet.

His graduate thesis presentation included data to visualize what has happened with the reported US drone strikes away from battle in the Middle East.

Begley has even created a Twitter account, @Dronestream, which he is utilizing to share the entire history of the approximately 480 known drone attacks between 2002 and 2013. These attacks took place throughout Yemen, Pakistan and Somalia. With the information he gathered from the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, he even stumbled upon accounts of civilian deaths and things you probably wouldn’t be comfortable seeing.
