Skip to comments.Combat Drones Soon To Fly Over U.S. Airspace [Police State Coming]
Posted on 02/15/2012 3:59:44 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
While combat drones are not allowed in the U.S. airspace without a special certificate from the FAA, the military is in a fix over the 7, 500 military drones deployed overseas, that need to be recalled home....
After returning home, the robotic aircraft would be stationed in military bases around the nation for use in emergencies...
Last week, Congress approved legislation requiring the FAA to create a plan for wide-scale integration of drones in the national airspace by 2015.

Testing, testing.................Those who disagree.........
You WILL obey!
There is nothing more frustrating then when I read something like this.
Either the Lame Stream Media and "Journ-0-Lists" who write these stories are lazy, clueless or simply avoiding providing the facts.
WHO (SPECIFICALLY) in Congress introduced such legislation is what I want to know and who are the co-sponsors or others who support this potential infringement of our rights???
I’ll bet they never see the border either.
Obama will give control to NATO who are now
the world’s SHARIA POLICE.
There are still people like me running around virtually unobserved and they can’t have that.
Heck, I might be building a nuke behind my garage. Worse yet, I might be growing a garden back there.
Surprise people. The drones are already here and have been for some time. I see them quite often as I live near a base where the drone operating crews are being trained. Simple enough to load them with whatever payload deemed to be needed and you have the tools to do what ever you want.
Sounds easy enough to me.
yeah, so I 'bird hunt' with a .270, I'm a good shot ;-)
I knew they were using drones, but I didn’t for the life of me think they had 7500 of these things flying around.
Thwe first time one of these damn things has a mid-air with a family in their Bonanza, maybe then the thought will occur to these idiots that this is a bad idea.
Seriously, as far as a “threat” to American citizens, how is this any different than manned US military aircraft flying over US soil? The administration; ANY administration, could just as easily fill a pilot’s seat with someone willing to launch an ATG at someone as they could a remote operator console.
Basic fact, these combat drones need to come back to the US, eventually. Provisions need to be made for that eventuality; unless you are proposing never letting them come back to US bases.
Better not be distributing unprocessed milk, either.
Maybe they should tap my phone too. After all they have the capability, no reason they shouldn’t use it.
Guess I’m gonna have to dig a tunnel to the neighbor’s house so we can smuggle heirloom seeds back and forth. After all, the FDA has already testified that there is no constitutional right to eat what I want. LOL
I hereby establish as of this date a half-mile no-fly zone around my house.
Aerial Interlopers and Flying Peeping Toms will interdicted and summarily prosecuted and punished with anti-drone countermeasures.
Those neighboring estates suffering Collateral Damage from such aforesaid actions may bring legal action against the federal government for littering on their respective properties.
Use of Flying drones violates New York State Law:
New York State's "Peeping Tom" laws only cover the use of a camera or other device to "peer" through a window. Signed into law on 23 June 2003.
Turbo, thanks for at least one rational post on this thread. As you point out, the aircraft are flying now and could have been doing these missions all the time. No evidence of that. This fear of UAV’s is not unlike the black helicopter one.
This is simply a case of allowing UAV’s to operate in the National Airspace, which they can only do now after jumping through hoops to get a one time clearance to fly. It’s a severe restriction and hindrance.
They have to acclimate Americans to this crap before they start herding them into re-education camps
