In October 2012, 32 Americans went to Pakistan as part of a delegation put together by Code Pink, including the co-founder of Code Pink, Medea Benjamin, as well as former U.S. Army Colonel Ann Wright, and several members of Veterans for Peace.
The delegation went to protest the use of weaponized drones that the U.S. is currently using to hover over and attack at will the defenseless tribal people of northwest Pakistan.
I interviewed three delegates, Medea Benjamin, Dr. Dianne Budd and Toby Blome who met with the families of drone victims, anti-drone activists in Pakistan, as well as the acting U.S. Ambassador Richard Hoagland.
Hear their reports and the stories of Pakistanis from the site of a modern U.S. massacre that is not only costing thousands of innocent lives, but also billions of U.S. dollars.
