Watch the full interview with Jonathan Landay on Democracy Now! at http://owl.li/mnrWI. Senior National Security and Intelligence reporter for McClatchy Newspapers discusses his reporting on secret U.S. records that confirmed drone strikes carried out in Pakistan over a four-year period ran contrary to the standards set forth publicly by President Obama. Classified U.S. documents reviewed by Landay show the Obama administration targeted and killed hundreds of supposed lower-level Afghan, Pakistani and unidentified "other" militants, even though they have claimed publicly to only target senior al-Qaeda leaders and associates planning to attack the United States. Records confirm drone operators were not always sure who they were killing. Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs weekdays on 1,100+ TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.
