NSA: critics of US drone program considered ‘threats,’ ‘adversaries,’ ‘propagandists’

However, the article also describes “propaganda campaigns that target UAV use” as one of the threats facing the drone program.

Among the “examples of potential propaganda themes that could be employed against UAV operations” some shocking entries are included.

One is an example titled “Nationality of Target vs. Due Process,” which says:

“Attacks against American and European persons who have become violent extremists are often criticized by propagandists, arguing that lethal action against these individuals deprives them of due process.”
