As the milestone was reached, a trial began in Nevada for fourteen antiwar activists who protested the drone attacks at the Creech Air Force Base last year. The base is one of several homes for the American military’s aerial drone program in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The activists were charged with criminal trespassing for entering the base with a letter describing their opposition to the drone program. In a blow to prosecutors, the judge in the case agreed Tuesday to delay a verdict for four months.
