A Terrorist, A President and the Rise of the Drone

New York Times national security reporter Scott Shane has written a new book, “Objective Troy.” It tells the story of the transformation of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen residing in Yemen, from a moderate imam, to a militant one, to an assassination target of United States. Shane explores President Obama’s strategy in the war on terror, the rise of drone technology, and whether killing Anwar al-Awlaki actually made him a bigger threat to American security.
