    Here are the eight operational rules the chiefs recommended: 1. UAV operations require a Certificate of Authorization (CAO) from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

UAVs will only be operated by personnel, both pilots and crew members, who have been trained and certified in the operation of the system. All agency personnel with UAV responsibilities, including command officers, will be provided training in the policies and procedures governing their use. 3. All flights will...

    Here is a video report on a Taliban "Code of Conduct" circulating in Afghanistan and Pakistan. CNN obtained a copy of the book. A couple of the principles in the book mentioned in the report are: 1. Suicide Attacks are to be reserved for "High Value" and "important targets because a brave son of Islam should not be used for low-value and useless targets." In other words - Kill as many as possible and target U.S. Soldiers and Westerners. 2. No exchanging prisoners for money. The "killing can only be decided by the Imam or his deputy." Once again, this...

Executives of Philadelphia's Cradle of Liberty Boy Scout Council announced Monday that they are about to give in to the radical Left after years of pressure to include homosexuals as Scout leaders. The council will soon unveil a new anti-discrimination policy that...
