Jeremy Scahill From Blackwater fame made and excellent documentary about the use of drones in the dirty wars of aggression the US, NATO and hence New Zealand is involved in. Just remember this film when John Key is going to visit Obama under whose watch these war crimes have multiplied and exploded.
