    Hi Harrison

    This is superb work, very powerful, prophetic even. I posted it over at Salon.com in Glenn Greenwald’s comments section. I hope everyone watches this.

    Amazing work, you’re going places!

    Hi Harrison

    I wish you could have read the article I link to below prior to making the vid. Apparently when a kill is made with a drone, the term used to describe it is, “bug splat”. Bug splat? Have we fallen that far? Yes. Yes we have.

    Thanks, Bill. Didn’t know about the use of the term “bug splat”. That would have been a good thing to include in the movie. The phrase alone says a lot about the dangers of the distancing effect.
