SEND IN THE DRONES: PREDATORS TO FLY ABOVE TEX-MEX BORDER Tue Apr 27 2010 19:39:41 ET
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told a Senate hearing Tuesday that unmanned aerial drones will soon fly through Texas skies!
"Big Sis" declared that over the past 15 months, federal law enforcement initiatives have made the border more secure than in any other time in history, the SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS reports in Wednesday editions.
The new "predator bees" have the capability to fly at altitudes used by commercial aircraft, and are designed to enhance intelligence capabilities of federal, state and local law enforcement.
But a recent analysis of the use of unmanned aerial vehicles found that they were twice as likely to crash as manned aircraft, according to the Congressional Research Service.
As much as I am for border enforcement, those drones can look north as well. hmmmmm.
Yes, by all means let us use the most expensive method we can dream up and after we have thrown away several more billion we will throw up our hands again and say well we spent all this money on enforcement and it just didn’t work.
The drones will fire missles at border guards.
here’s a thought, protect the border by having boots on the ground and then seeing as it is illegal to be in those country illegally then go after them
what the hell is a couple of drones going to do.
it takes half an hour sometimes to get boots to the area where they are coming in and what about the rest of the border
she is one dope just like holder who goes after this bill but lets the black panthers off even when there is video evidence
I hope the next president goes after those black panthers too as they should also investigate how the hell is bozo and holder ignoring muslims terrorists and black racists
So are they going to just watch with them or load them?
There is more truth in that than not sadly.
They can use the drones to keep track of them and register them to vote.
I don't know about flying predators, but I think its a GREAT IDEA to send all those 0bama-supporting statist marxist lennonist stalinist drones to the border. Maybe a good wind will come by and blow them all across forever.
BUILD A F...G FENCE!!!
THEY HAVEN’T DONE THAT YET!!!
It worked in Israel..and it will work here, not perfectly but it is NEEDED NOW!
BUILD A F...G FENCE! HOW COMPLEX IS THAT?
This is just more smoke and mirors! We don’t need the government to ‘watch’ the illegals streaming across the border 24/7..WE WANT THEM TO STOP THEM!!
Every hour since 1/20/09...we have another outrage from this adminstration.
Ought to fly them armed with Hellfire missile on the Mexican side of the border and plaster any and all drug lords’ haciendas with out regard to who is inside them. That might wake up Mr. Calderone!
