But What About Hamas’s Rockets?

GAZA, PALESTINE - 2021/05/11: (EDITORS NOTE: Image depicts death)A relative mourns while holding the body of Ahmed Al-Shenbari killed in Israeli air raids.Palestinians fired uninterrupted barrages of rockets into Israel, as its military pounded Gaza with air strikes through the early hours of Tuesday, in a dramatic escalation of clashes in Jerusalem. Explosions shook buildings throughout Gaza and rocket sirens sent Israelis in many southern towns scurrying for shelter overnight. Two Palestinians were killed and more than 100 wounded in air strikes, Palestinian officials said. (Photo by Ahmed Zakot/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images)

“Hellfire missiles, the explosives fired from drones, are not always fired at people. In fact most drone strikes are aimed at phones. The SIM card provides a person’s location; when turned on, a phone can become a deadly proxy for the individual being hunted. When a night raid or drone strike successfully neutralizes a target’s phone, operators call that a “touchdown.”
Jeremy Scahill, The Assassination Complex: Inside the Government's Secret Drone Warfare Program

“When you first go on duty at CIA headquarters, you raise your hand and swear an oath—not to government, not to the agency, not to secrecy. You swear an oath to the Constitution. So there’s this friction, this emerging contest between the obligations and values that the government asks you to uphold, and the actual activities that you’re asked to participate in.”
Jeremy Scahill, The Assassination Complex: Inside the Government's Secret Drone Warfare Program

“The British version of 'Shit My Dad Says' is really entertaining.”
