Newsflash - targets identified as enemy combatants do not necessarily need to have their faces identified. Thermal imaging of their lower extremities is sufficient, as a Hellfire that takes out your knees will pretty much take out the rest of you too.
Lots of people here throw around the term “Hellfire” as if the federal government has an endless supply of those $55,000 missiles. They do not. They do not have enough missiles of any kind to take out 1% of the people that would be in rebellion against them should it come to that. If missiles could win wars there’d have been no reason to spend spend 10 years in Vietnam and Iraq and going on 12 years in Afghanistan.
News flash! Most modern CCD cameras can be bloom blinded with IR. The hoodie is meant only to protect from face recognition identity software and cameras, not to keep you from being a glowing blob on the background and in the reticle.
