Drone Papers Reveal Weak Links In The Kill Chain

You may have heard that every drone strike begins with solid intelligence and strict oversight. Not so much!

So, that happened. This week, a cache of documents revealed new information about our drone warfare program. The Intercept's Cora Currier joins us to discuss the program's problems with intel and accountability. Meanwhile, an impending marger between beer titans Miller and Budweiser raises concerns for small brewers. Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) joins us to defend them. And finally, the Democrats' first primary debate is in the books. and we're putting our own conventional notion about "who won" on trial.

"So That Happened" hosts Jason Linkins, Zach Carter, and Arthur Delaney are joined this week by the Intercept's Cora Currier, Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) and HuffPost reporter Elise Foley.

This podcast was produced, edited and engineered by Adriana Usero and Peter James Callahan, with assistance from Christine Conetta.
