In recent days, a 22-year-old Yemeni citizen who studied in the U.S. and describes himself as fervently pro-American testified in Washington about the effect of drone strikes. Farea Al-muslimi’s account of innocent bystanders who can’t stand al-Qaeda but live in fear of the U.S. technology is getting shared widely online. He was even invited to brief the Obama Administration.

Regular contributor and Harvard Law professor Jonathan Zittrain joins Marketplace Tech host David Brancaccio to explain his take on drones and their unintended consequences.
