Maybe this is why Obumma wants to trim back the FAA. He doesn't want them spotting these drones flying all over the place spying on us.
How the F could the govt not "know" who was responsible for the drone? It's obviously DHS or CIA.
Not necessarily. The National Guard has drones ... and they are not the best at doing the required paperwork to do training.
I can see some drone operators showing up for a drill weekend ready to fly their toy, and their full time training officer who was supposed to apply for the waiver ... didn't!
Given their outstanding character, with the "Army Values" driving their moral compass ... they probably lied to the commander and said it was done.
I've heard on more than one occasion: "it's better to ask forgiveness than to ask permission."
good news though ... these lying losers are always the first ones promoted!
