It will surely be judged to be among the great shortcomings of American justice and defence policy to have these glorified remote controlled airplanes killing people on the other side of the planet, with scant evidence and lots of "collateral damage". Important of watch, learn about, think about, and exercise one's civic responsibility about.

This film powerfully raises an important, compelling issue that weighs far too lightly--if it weighs at all--on the conscience of most Americans.

With the advent of the Trump presidency it also highlights the colossal, death-dealing hypocrisy of the American Left. Obama can preside over the killing of thousands of innocent Muslims with relative impunity and there is little public outcry. But let Donald Trump suspend immigration from a handful of Near Eastern countries with predominantly Muslim populations (though excluding most predominantly Muslim countries and those with largest Muslim populations) and there is an eruption of public wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Don't get me wrong Trump's "Muslim ban" is ill-conceived and also harms innocent people but it pales in comparison to the atrocities of the Bush-Obama-Trump drone wars and the Clinton-era militarily-enforced economic sanctions that killed hundreds of thousands of Muslim civilians in Iraq. This whole episode reveals the bankrupt, hollow rhetoric and values of the mainstream US Left--every bit as bankrupt and hollow as those of the mainstream US Right. *Unmanned* is a testament to this.

[Cannot possibly improve upon Michelle's comments above!!!]
About a year or so before Iran brought down a U.S. drone illegally in their airspace, an article in Wired reported - - correctly so, as it was verified by the military - - that Creeh AFB's drone operating system was compromised by an unkown keylogger [malware]. The drone model brought down by the Iranian military was the same one originating from Creeh AFB. Those automated systems can always be compromised.
