Double Standards with Afshin Rattansi is a political satire program broadcast from the heart of London that exposes the hypocrisy of world powers with comedy and high-profile guests.
In this edition of the show we look at the issue of US assassination drone strikes.
Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia are major countries where the United States carries out killer drone attacks.
Human Rights Watch says the killer drone strikes in Yemen have led to the death of civilians over the past years in a blatant violation of international law.
According to the Washington-based New America Foundation, the drone attacks in Yemen almost tripled in 2012.
Washington claims the drones target "militants," but international human rights groups say the facts on the ground indicate that civilians are frequently killed in the airstrikes.
