It took Sen. Rand Paul many hours of a filibuster to get the US Justice Department to admit they can’t drone an American on American soil. But our government still insists it has the “right” to zap anyone, anywhere outside the US – in secret, without any accountability, and without regard for innocent civilians.

This isn’t making us any friends. Indeed, it is making us plenty of new enemies. It’s an immoral, cowardly policy, one that will come back to haunt us if it isn’t stopped. Yet there are very few voices raised against it. is amplifying those voices – but we can’t do it without your help.

We depend on the voluntary donations of our readers – that is, you. You can make a difference in the fight for a rational foreign policy by donating today.
