Former U.S. Air Force pilot Brandon Bryant flew predator drones from 2007 to 2011, manning the camera on UAVs that attacked people overseas. His squadron was credited with 1,626 kills; he figures he’s personally killed 13 people, and his involvement has left him traumatized.

“The clinical definition of PTSD is an anxiety disorder associated with witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event,” Bryant said on “Democracy Now!” on Friday. “Think how you would feel if you were part of something that you felt violated the Constitution.”
