If you’ve got Netflix, you’ve got instance access to this soul shattering documentary by Jeremy Scahill. He goes into Afghanistan and Yemen to meet personally with the families that have been decimated by our illegal, and often misguided, drone program. This documentary didn’t just horrify me at the things our military is guilty of, but actually made me ashamed to be American. This documentary probes deep into the lives of Anwar Al-Alaki and his family, and how he came to be known as one of the first, if not the first, American we learned about being droned by his own government, while in another protected country. This will not be an easy documentary to watch, but you owe it to yourself as an American, if you want to understand the rampant hatred of us in the Middle East, because it doesn’t stem from what we’ve been told.
