Targeted Killings; Wole Soyinka on Africa; NJ’s Jughandle

A US Predator unmanned drone armed with a missile stands on the tarmac of Kandahar military airport on June 13, 2010.

A leaked White House memo lays out a legal defense for “targeted killings” – including drone strikes. Omar Shakir, co-author of Living Under Drones, talks about why he objects to the U.S. strikes. Then, Laura Seay, professor at Morehouse College, explains why the conflicts in Mali and Afghanistan should not be compared. Plus: Nobel prize-winning Wole Soyinka on his new book about Africa; a February series on fashion kicks off with Parsons professor Hazel Clark; and the end of the New Jersey jughandle, that odd left turn.
