Colonel (retired) Martha McSally will appear before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights on Tuesday April 23rd at 4 pm EST in Room 226 the Dirksen Senate Office Building. She will testify as a national security and targeting expert at a hearing called: “Drone Wars: The Constitutional and Counterterrorism Implications of Targeted Killing.”
Colonel (retired) McSally led targeting efforts in Africa while serving as the Chief of Current Operations of United States Africa Command from 2007-2010. She also has extensive experience in the military targeting process using unmanned and manned platforms in several other positions throughout her 26 year career. As a former Professor of National Security Studies at the George C. Marshall Center, Martha brings unique experience to the hearing as a national security expert who has strategic, operational, and tactical experience in this important subject.
“I am honored to be invited to testify and provide insights to the military targeting process and the use of remotely piloted vehicles (aka ‘drones’) as a strike platform,” says McSally. “I hope this hearing helps inform lawmakers and the public in order to increase transparency and strengthen national security against terrorism and extremism.”
