Congress OK's expanded drone flights over the U.S.; bill headed to President Obama's desk



www.nydailynews.com...


Congress has approved legislation allowing expanded drone flights over the U.S., and possibly some scenic sections of the Empire State.

The bill will guide operation of the Federal Aviation Administration for four years and gives the agency until September 2015 to open up more airspace to the remotely controlled vehicles.

In New York, that could mean Air National Guard MQ-9 Reaper drone training missions over the bucolic 6.1 million acres of Adirondack Park, flown out of Hancock Field in Syracuse.

My first thought is that this has been put forth just so Obama can "reject" it around election time.

Once he's back in office you should probably expect expanded drone supervision on the American people. It's already been tested in certain areas for various reasons but it looks like the plans have been sent into overdrive.

Who's to say it hasn't already been happening without your knowledge?

I've said it before... Iran took one of these down.

Give the American enthusiasts two weeks and you will see your first post on ATS of, "WE GOT ONE!"

After the first four or five get downed they will realize it is too expensive to continue.

If this doesn't prove that we live in a police state, nothing will. When will people draw the line? In a few months we will be having Pakistani style drone strikes on border regions (Mexico).

Then we would have a repeat of the Iranian incident!

"Pretty please...can we have our drone back?"

This is too much to hope for. (I jest.)

It would be convenient to have one of these drones "malfunction" and shoot missiles at the civilian population just to have it blamed on an "Iranian" plot.
