Insurgents in Iraq have hacked into live video feeds from unmanned American drone aircraft, US media reports say.

Shia fighters are said to have used off-the-shelf software programs such as SkyGrabber to capture the footage.

The hacking was possible because the remotely flown planes have an unprotected communications link.

Obtaining such video feeds could provide insurgents with information about sites the military might be planning to target.

BBC news

So , the rebels can now hack the drones due to a security breach in the drones video survaillance system.
Hey maybe the guys in afghanistan can do the same and video the bombing of wedding parties and funerals and then use the footage to out the US government for the illegal killing of innocent people.

This is clearly some sort of psyop bs, because to think that the american military is flying drones with some sort of unprotected com link is stupid.

This is the same logic as false flags. Create a problem, get a patsy, repress the rights of your followers. This will probably be used as fuel for the fire on the anti internet agenda of the world elite.

I see right through this, it's a lie and manipulation.

I also found it a bit crazy that something like the attack drone developed by DARPA would have some security breach that obvious !

something isnt quite right here !

However they did say that they had captured an insurgent with footage from a drone on the laptop!

So im still not sure either way
