Not really news. Drones can do all sorts of things.

That’s why gun control is so passe! Any one with a modest skill set can put cameras on some of these remotely piloted mini planes that are tiny and not so easily targeted...control them with a medium distance radio controler and guide them in with some sort of explosive in their nose.

The internet is full of videos of such devices being controlled by high school and college kids and it’s surprising the distance they can be controlled from.

The government collectivists are attempting to control the populace using a 19th = 20th century modality by controlling guns...they have no idea of the 21st century technologies that can be used against them. The military and CIA types would know but the leftist politicians stuck in the 60’s utopianism probably don’t...and the civilian appointees that run these agencies have no vision.

Exactly. I thought this very thing when read about the guy who said he could trigger a paint ball gun from a drone platform and hit a human sized target every time. I'm sure the Secret Service or CIA has either developed or started to develop counter measures.

That terrorists “could” do all kinds of things is hardly a revelation. Makes you wonder why he thinks it a good idea to give terrorists the idea…

How in the world did you reach that conclusion?? Which would you rather have as President, a wild eyed america hating activist with delusions of god-hood worshiped by the media, or an old dimwit with no charisma, no influence, and no following?

And in order to prevent this, all RC hobbyists will be required to register their quarter scale Focke Wulf-en and smarthpone operated quadcopters after which they will be confiscated and banned.

Fortunately, the terrorists will not attack Obama using a drone. Why would they harm their biggest asset? [Note: I say “fortunately” both because the wreckage from an attack might disrupt DC traffic and because the problem is the pro-socialism voters as much as the particular socialist in our White House.]

Yeah if you can find the frequency spectrum in time...digital spread spectrum guidance is much harder to scan for and jam. With known venues...such as public speeches, a craft could be sent in on GPS guidance, especially a swarm of them.(hard to knock out all of them), forcing political targets into indoor protected venues. There are apps on smart phones that allow remote control of many of these mini planes and copters.

Now, the point I was trying to make, was that there are many more scarier things than guns that collectivists need to be wary of. For example, clothing and make up has been developed that will block cameras from seeing ones face or block one’s thermal images from being picked up on public cameras. I’ve seen home made cannon and small canister shooters that pipe makers have produced in their own garages or at work during down time periods. Those “shake inductor” flashlights can be modified with a high value capacitor with two electrodes replacing the LED so that a touch to the skin produces a hell of a stun.

In short with all the tech in the US now, the collectivists are so quaintly 20th century in coming after our cute ol’ guns!

Kinda thing the man who ordered the death of Osama Bin Laden is the number one target of all Al Qeada assassins. And the word assassin exists because of Islamic killers. Obama is used to dealing with Chicago mobsters who generally do not kill other made men. So he thought he could kill another made mobster and not suffer consequences. He is in for one heck of a shock. The consequences are just beginning. Benghazi, Algeria.... and the list goes on. As his Muslim friends in Egypt chanted, 'we are all Osama now'. They did not chant, 'we are all Obama now'. But that is reality. What does that matter.

I think obama should be more worried about all those missing MANPADS in Libya. Be interesting to see if he has the guts to schedule any trips to the ME.

I don’t agree.

I believe the Pakistani’s were tired of hiding Osama, and that his usefullness was at an end and they set him up.

We had a riot in Benghazi to captiure an Ambassador to hold hostage for the Blind Sheik. I believe that was the plan and that it fell apart.

Obama is working with the Muslim Brotherhood, the last thing they want is something to happen to him.

If you want to kidnap someone, you simply setup a road block. The same road blocks that caught the Turkish diplomats leaving their meeting with Stevens. You do not attack a building with a known safe house. That kidnap plan was doomed for failure, if that was the plan. Although I must admit the idiots running DC right now are stupid enough to undertake a flawed plan. Just look at all their flawed domestic plans.

If the Pakistanis had given him up, we would not have needed to use stealth helicopters. And the Pakistani Doctor who supposedly gave up Osama Bin Laden, is under arrest. Our relationship with Pakistan has soured tremendously since Obama ramped up the drone attacks. They even cutoff our supply line from the sea to Afghanistan. Any deals were made between the US and Al Qeada. For example, Osama was on his death bed, and decided to offer his life for help in Libya and Syria. Unfortunately, that does not make Al Qeada your ally, as Obama has found out in Benghazi, Algeria and Mali.

This Blair quote came from the Council on Foreign Relations media event at the link below:

“U.S. Drone Strike Policies”

http://www.cfr.org/counterterrorism/us-drone-strike-policies/p29849

The subtext of this presentation by Blair is that Barry is acting unconstitutionally and in violation of Geneva Accords and evading prosecution by preventing transparency or proper review under separation of powers, especially the CIA drone strikes as opposed to the DOD drone strikes.
