Summary

The Pulitzer Prize-nominated examination of the United States drone campaign, and U.S. counterterrorism policies. On January 30, 2013, President Barack Obama acknowledged publicly what most Americans already knew: The U.S. government was operating a covert drone campaign in Pakistan. Even as Obama maintained policy was for judicious actions only, his own administration was drawing up secret plans to institutionalize targeted killings in U.S. counter-terrorism policy. The scope of those plans remained hidden until The Washington Post published a three-part series as reporters Craig Whitlock, Greg Miller, Karen DeYoung, and Julie Tate explored how the use of drones moved from a temporary means to kill terrorists to a permanent weapon of war. Collected together for the first time, THE PERMANENT WAR is the result of a year of investigative reporting on the who, what, and how behind the targeted killing policies that will from the core of American counter-terrorism efforts for years to come.
