The Drone Papers is a leak of national security documents published by The Intercept in October 2015 on the United States's use of drone warfare.[1][2][3][4] The leak revealed the bureaucratic process of approving a drone strike.[5]


Micah Zenko of Foreign Policy wrote that the Drone Papers "mandate a Congressional investigation" but did not expect one to happen during the Obama administration.[6] The Guardian wrote that the documents showed that close to 90 percent of United States drone killings in a five-month period did not kill the intended target.[7]
