Déjà Cloo’

Hello. Remember me? More importantly, remember George Clooney? He’s back–in spirit.

Yes, George Clooney’s idea to prevent and monitor human rights abuses and mass atrocities via satellite has come back down to earth. Unfortunately, instead of crashing and burning like SkyLab, it’s hanging out around 5,000 feet like SkyNET.

 

In today’s New York Times, Mark Hanis* and Andrew Stobo Sniderman of the (former) Genocide Intervention Network suggest non-governmental organizations use drones to monitor human rights and support accountability measures.

I say more, and make worse drone jokes, at Wings Over Iraq. Unsurprisingly, I take out my frustrations on human rights advocates again.
