Ex-Air Force Pilot Discusses Trauma From Remote Killing

Posted on Oct 26, 2013
Democracy Now!

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.”
