Mainstream media have finally begun to
cover drone warfare as a feature of U.S. policy, due in part to Senator Rand
Paul’s historic filibuster during the confirmation of CIA director John Brennan
in March 2013. The Upstate New York
Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars, however, has organized
protests against Hancock National Air Guard Base near Syracuse, to raise
awareness about Reaper drones,
over the last three years.
