In this video at 0:26 is a picture of ARGUS under a heavily armed drone. The aerial view of Quantico is just down the Potomac River from the White House. It is my guess that POTUS is protected by an ARGUS equipped armed drone that is authorized to use lethal force on US soil to protect POTUS.

Among the missions of the armed drone is to detect and defeat sniper ambushes, including ambush by mini-drones that might be employed by terrorists or assassins. I think all of these leaks about ARGUS and drones are aimed at softening up public opinion to awareness of an already existing presence of armed drones over the US.

Here is a prior FR article on ARGUS that I posted with DARPA info:

It's sad members of the State Regulated Press (SRP)- like the New York Times and Washington Post aren't allowed to cover stories like this..

Thanks for the links - interesting stuff...
