Drone war whistleblower Daniel Hale sentenced to 45 months in prison | WSWS - July 21, 2021 |

In a brief statement before Judge O'Grady handed down the sentence, Hale said he copied the classified documents because he believed it "was necessary to dispel the lie that drone warfare keeps us safe, that our lives are worth more than theirs." The courageous whistleblower then went on, "I am here because I stole something that was never mine to take--precious human life. I couldn't keep living in a world in which people pretend that things weren't happening that were. Please, your honor, forgive me for taking papers instead of human lives."
