Austro-Afghan journalist and writer Emran Feroz discusses his work on the global drone war currently being waged by the US and its allies. The interview explores the author’s experiences growing up in Austria immediately after the September 11, 2001, attacks against the United States and the subsequent invasion and occupation of Afghanistan by a US-led coalition. The author also recounts the hidden history surrounding the first known drone attack in Afghanistan and the larger question of drone violence, which has remained invisible to mainstream audiences.
