Criminals and Terrorists Can Fly Drones Too

Remote-controlled aircraft and robot technology can be used for bad just as easily as for good

Americans know their government uses unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or drones, on military and intelligence missions from surveillance to assassination. But drones are no longer the sole domain of the military, and just as with many new technologies, they can easily fall into the wrong hands. . . Read Complete Report

Criminals use drones to track police during crimes

Wonder what U.S. history would like if Butch and Sundance or Bonnie and Clyde had a few lookout drones?

In a case that would have looked more like a movie plot 10 years ago, new innovations have brought career criminals many new ways to cause a bunch of new troubles. Last Saturday, two members of a burglary ring known as the “Tub Gang” were accused of using a drone to spy on officers while carrying out thefts across Pennsylvania and other states. . .

How the NSA uses SIM cards to mistakenly kill civilians

The president’s opinion

Despite the operator’s claims, the Obama administration insists that terrorists are killed with high precision. The president iterated during his speech at the National Defense University last May that a high degree of certainty is employed when target selection, ““by narrowly targeting our action against those who want to kill us and not the people they hide among, we are choosing the course of action least likely to result in the loss of innocent life.” Yet the increased reliance on phone tracking is contrary to this claim

Former drone operator’s testimony echoes information in leaked NSA documents

When speaking about his former colleague, the JSOC operator says “people get hung up that there’s a targeted list of people, it’s really like we’re targeting a cell phone. We’re not going after people — we’re going after their phones, in the hopes that the person on the other end of that missile is the bad guy.” His testimony of JSOC mission policies echo information revealed in the NSA documents leaked by Edward Snowden along with the criticism made by former drone sensor operator with the U.S. Air Force, Brandon Bryant.

So the next time you’re at a stop light, riding a bus, at the mall, and someone near you is using a cell phone (or pad), just hope that person, even if innocent, isn’t using a phone targeted by the NSA.

The “TAL’ Zone Report #7: Area 51 and the super drones

Tal Zone

EXCLUSIVE

‘TAL’ has had an eye on Area 51 for years. Actually ever since the connection to his early investigations into underground Dulce revealed them. This sudden loosen up on information about the goings on at Area 51 looks like an attempt to draw attention away from Area 51. Like getting the populace into believing the the government has turned it into a drone base.  Maybe so. And maybe there are no underground facilities at Area51 either. Right . . . EDITOR

Unmasked: Area 51’s Biggest, Stealthiest Spy Drone Yet

The drone that spied on bin Laden and on Iran’s nukes was just the start. Meet its bigger, higher-flying, stealthier cousin, the Northrop Grumman RQ-180. It’s probably been flying for a few years now, but you weren’t supposed to know that; the existence of this secret project, based out of Area 51, was revealed Friday by Aviation Week. – See more at: Area 51

EXCLUSIVE: Secret New UAS Shows Stealth, Efficiency Advances

December 06, 2013
EXCERPTS

A large, classified unmanned aircraft developed by Northrop Grumman is now flying—and it demonstrates a major advance in combining stealth and aerodynamic efficiency. Defense and intelligence officials say the secret unmanned aerial system (UAS), designed for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, is scheduled to enter production for the U.S. Air Force and could be operational by 2015. . .

. . . Beyond the financial disclosures, publicly available overhead imagery shows new shelters and hangars sized for an aircraft with a 130-ft.-plus wing span at Northrop’s Palmdale, Calif., plant and at Area 51, the Air Force’s secure flight-test center at Groom Lake, Nev. . .

The Black Hornet is a small, flying object, weighing just over half an ounce. It may look cute, but it’s not a toy. It’s a drone. The Black Hornet was unveiled last week at the Association of the United States Army Expo in Washington, DC. The drone is marketed as a tool that soldiers can carry with them. While the US Army hasn’t used the hummingbird-sized drone yet, the British Army has used them in Afghanistan. RT’s Ameera David takes a closer look at the miniscule flying object.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) sent two letters to FBI Director Robert Mueller asking for the agency to explain its domestic drone program as well as the policies behind it. Assistant Director for the Office of Congressional Affairs, Stephen Kelly, responded to the lawmaker’s request saying that “every request to use UAV’s must be approved by senior FBI management and without a warrant the FBI will not use a UAV.” Also on Friday, the Federal Aviation Administration approved drones to be used for civilian use, and RT speaks with Michael Brooks, producer of The Majority Report, about drones.

FAA WARNS AMERICANS: DON’T SHOOT AT THE DRONES

WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) — Don’t even think about it. People who fire guns at drones are endangering the public and property and could be prosecuted or fined, the Federal Aviation Administration warned Friday.

The FAA released a statement in response to questions about an ordinance under consideration in the tiny farming community of Deer Trail, Colorado that would encourage hunters to shoot down the flying aircraft. The administration reminded the public that it regulates the nation’s airspace, including the airspace over cities and towns.

A drone “hit by gunfire could crash, causing damage to persons or property on the ground, or it could collide with other objects in the air,” the statement said. “Shooting at an unmanned aircraft could result in criminal or civil liability, just as would firing at a manned airplane.” . . .

The Resident: US to arm border drones? (Video Report)

63 drone sites

Russian troops in America, FEMA  camps, a president who refuses to proof who he is, arming drones over America…. we are in dire straights.

Conspiratorial thought: What if the planned armed drones to be deployed along the U.S./Mexican border are not planned to stop the drugs crossing from Mexico into the U.S. but will be deployed when Americans try to cross over into Mexico to escape the coming clamp-down on all of America’s freedoms.   Mexico is probably looking good to many freedom loving people.. at least in Mexico you know what kind of government you’ll have . . .

According to a US Customs and Border Protection report obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, the US is leaving the door open to add weapons to its drones patrolling its borders. Currently, customs has eight drones patrolling its northern and southern borders, and it also has two patrolling the Caribbean. Apparently, the US has no intention of slowing or curbing its ever-expanding drone program. The Resident (aka Lori Harfenist) discusses. Follow The Resident athttp://www.twitter.com/TheResident

From Phys.Org  39 minutes ago by Henry C. Jackson

(AP)—The growing use of unmanned surveillance “eyes in the sky” aircraft raises a thicket of privacy concerns, but the U.S. Congress is getting mixed advice on what, if anything, to do about it.
A future with domestic drones may be inevitable. While civilian drone use is currently limited to government agencies and some public universities, a law passed by Congress last year requires the  to allow widespread drone flights in the U.S. by 2015. According to FAA estimates, as many as 7,500 civilian drones could be in use within five years. . . . Read Complete Report
