If the Pentagon wanted to get Cruz elected, this is how to do it

Pentagon admits it has deployed military spy drones over the U.S.

The Pentagon has deployed drones to spy over U.S. territory for non-military missions over the past decade, but the flights have been rare and lawful, according to a new report.
The report by a Pentagon inspector general, made public under a Freedom of Information Act request, said spy drones on non-military missions have occurred fewer than 20 times between 2006 and 2015 and always in compliance with existing law.
The report, which did not provide details on any of the domestic spying missions,  said the Pentagon takes the issue of military drones used on American soil “very seriously.”
A senior policy analyst for the ACLU, Jay Stanley, said it is good news no legal violations were found, yet the technology is so advanced that it’s possible laws may require revision.
“Sometimes, new technology changes so rapidly that existing law no longer fit what people think are appropriate,” Stanley said. “It’s important to remember that the American people do find this to be a very, very sensitive topic.”
The use of unmanned aerial surveillance (UAS) drones over U.S. surfaced in 2013 when then-FBI director Robert Mueller testified before Congress that the bureau employed spy drones to aid investigations, but in a “very,very minimal way, very seldom.”
Translation, ‘all the time, as often as we can’

This might get Trump elected, because, if they were pressed on why they are doing this, they would be forced to admit, they fear terrorist attacks from infiltrating Jihadists.

Do you REALLY believe that?

If that is true, then it really is time for a revolution.

Let's put it this way, I believe if they have the opportunity to do this while on whatever mission the air force is PROHIBITED by law from doing with some piece of paper excusing them, they do it.

They are the executive and their business is enforcement.


This kind of thing is what happens AFTER the NSA gets busy with all that data they 'have no interest in'
