Thesigers Director Quoted in Wired

LONDON, 29 April 2010: Wired magazine's Danger Room, a widely read and influential blog on national security innovation, quoted Thesigers director Michael Innes in its reporting on drone warfare.  The piece focuses on the legal implications of military drone use,  including the responsibilities of drone pilots, the nature of the modern  battlefield, and intelligence processes. On this, Wired quotes:  "Intelligence and SF/SOF [special operations] targeting in general is a   surprisingly ordinary, bureaucratic process. Can’t imagine there’s all   that much that’s fundamentally different about the drones approach. If I   had to guess, there’s a long chain of individuals who take small   decisions that add up to one big one. Everyone’s responsible, so no   one’s responsible."
