This story vividly illustrates how DC’s aggressive foreign policy boomerangs back on citizens at home:
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has customized its Predator drones, originally built for overseas military operations, to carry out at-home surveillance tasks that have civil libertarians worried: identifying civilians carrying guns and tracking their cell phones, government documents show.
The Pentagon learned how to use these remote-controlled murder machines to control hostile populations in Iraq and Afghanistan. So – how long until these Predator drones (you gotta love the name) are re-armed with Hellfire missiles? All to protect us from “terrorists,” of course.
