Big Brother

Congress passed a bill, the FAA re-authorization act, and Obama has signed it into law. On its face that seems innocuous, but the law instructs the FAA to develop plans to allow for the operation of 32,000 drone aircraft in the skies over the United States. The same kind of remotely piloted aircraft that has been used to covertly observe and rain Hellfire missiles onto the heads of islamic terrorists around the world. To put this in perspective; on 9/11 only about 4,000 aircraft of all kinds (commercial, private and cargo) needed to be grounded. For some reason, the United States government foresees the need to fly eight times that many covert surveillance aircraft in our "friendly" skies as were in the air on 9/11. Inquiring minds wish to know, to what end?
