The Life and Drone Death of an Accused Terrorist--with The Intercept’s Ryan Gallagher

vor 3 Jahren

Bilal el-Berjawi was a suspected associate of senior Al Qaeda leadership in East Africa until he was killed by a drone strike in Somalia. Leaked Pentagon documents showed surveillance of al-Berjawi for years by the US, and an exchange of information with the British government used to facilitate his execution in Africa. We discuss the case of el-Berjawi--who was dubbed “Objective Peckham” by intelligence agencies--and the implications of England and the US killing their own citizens abroad with drone strikes, with the Intercept’s Ryan Gallagher in this Lip News interview, hosted by Elliot Hill.
