30th May – Dr Christopher Fuller – See It, Shoot it: The Secret History of the CIA’s Lethal Drone Program

This eye-opening talk will uncover the formally classified history of the most important instrument of U.S. counterterrorism today: the armed drone.

Drawing upon research conducted for the completion of his recent book, See It/Shoot It, published by Yale University Press, Dr Christopher Fuller will reveal that, contrary to popular belief, the CIA’s covert drone program is not a product of 9/11. Rather, it is the result of U.S. counterterrorism practices extending back to an influential group of policy makers within the Reagan administration.

Dr Christopher J. Fuller is a lecturer in modern U.S. history at the University of Southampton. His research and teaching focuses upon American foreign policy, in particular the origins and conduct of the War on Terror; an exploration of the United States as a post-territorial empire; and the role played by the Internet in both enhancing and undermining American national security. He is a joint U.S./UK citizen, and for the first time in a long time, feels stuck between a rock and a hard place.
