By Scott Noble

This is the final installment of the 5-part non-profit documentary film series, 'Counter-Intelligence' by the talented independent filmmaker, Scott Noble. This episode, "Drone Nation" focuses on the most recent phase in the history of the CIA and covert operations, with the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which allows for the indefinite detention without a trial of all Americans without a warrant.

A Study by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism Revealed that only 1.5% of the people killed from drone strikes in Pakistan have been "high value targets."

The remaining 98.5% are made up of civilians and the classification "other," which is used to designate any male of "military age" killed in the vicinity of a drone strike.

The film series has been lauded roundly by multiple CIA veterans and by college professors, alike - the latter recommending this series to become part of the coursework for classes on political science, history, sociology and cultural criticism.

Humanist Hall is wheelchair accessible around the corner at  411  28th  Street

$5 donations are expected.
