Hello ATS. Lets get this going.
My father recently came into town and after a few drinks he started discussing his work.
Normally he says something like, "I can't tell you anything more than that."
I understand classified material and his need for secrecy, so I accept that. But then we have a few drinks and he tells me to bring up some YouTube
videos of drone strikes.
He's sitting there next to me saying "yep" and "mmhmm"
I'm just watching, in disgust, because that's the kind of person I am, and he finally tells me that those were not in fact unmanned drones, but
manned planes that are made to look like civilian jets. He tells me what aircraft they are (which I will not disclose, and if you can't figure out
why, then hit yourself in the head with a hammer until you get it)
The point I'm getting to is...
Could he be right? I hear about endless accounts of drone strikes on ATS.
What I'm wondering is:
Could all of them be true?
Could the government be using them as scapegoats instead of manned patrols?
And, if so, what is the reasoning for not just telling the truth?
To the last question, derrrr. We all know TPTB will always lie when the truth is just as plausible.
To summarize, I don't believe my dad is lying to me. And, given my current trust of the government, I'm always inclined to believe a lie on their
Just looking for feedback.
