“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.”
Jeremy Scahill
