Due to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, the FAA finally had to release a list of who is flying drones over American airspace and where they are located. Some of these drone flights are fairly benign, such as soldiers learning how to fly the Raven on military installations. I don’t think most Americans have a problem with drones being used to patrol our borders to act as spotters for Border Patrol agents. However, I can only speak for myself when I say that I’m frightened over how all of the intelligence gathering methods and techniques that we used in Iraq and Afghanistan against Al Qaeda are slowly creeping into American domestic life for use against American citizens. For a long time now we’ve heard the line: there are no UAV’s over America. This pretty much shoots that out of the water.
What do you think? Where do you draw the line on domestic surveillance? Is bio-metrics coming to a shopping mall, school house, and gun shop near you?
William, even the dumb can be educated to a degree, with effort. The ones that are the real problem are the stupid ones, you just cannot fix stupid and life for them has got to be very difficult.
Yeah like them ones from the sandbox; they weren't happy just sticking it to all us live ones; now they want last revenge on their deceased wives. Oh, Well there are the mentally defective roaming the planet.
Notice how many are at universities? What's up with that...
You give them an inch they take 3 miles don't like it even though I have nothing to hide Im just as appalled at the liberties this Gov is taking in the name of keeping us safe. I don't fly any more because the first one to touch me will get slapped and I will go to jail and thats the way it would end up. I also write my reps about it almost every day as well
remember we are the terriorists
