Each iteration of the “War on Terror” has depended on secrecy for success. As long as the strategy remained under wraps, the politicians were able to pretend that they were “doing something” about terrorism. Thus it will be with drones. The US advertises that it is the most effective of weapons against terrorism. Perhaps, instead, we will learn that it provokes far more extremism than it eliminates.

Clive Stafford Smith, director of Reprieve, is setting out on an expedition to discover how drone strikes are affecting the 800,000-strong population of Waziristan, Pakistan
