On May 26, 2012 a Pinehurst Texas affiliate of CBS News reported that a small town sheriff from Montgomery County Texas has shed some light on a new U.S. phenomenon in law enforcement. (You can read the full story at www.whiteoutpress.com/articles/q22012/domestic-spy-drones-to-be-armed.)The government of the United States has secretly deployed unmanned surveillance drones to spy on citizens of the United States and has armed many of them with the same weapons being deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
On December 31, 2011 when President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act, it received little attention, and the President commented that he didn't like the "provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists," but somehow he didn't object to deploying these weapons within the United States with the intended targets being sovereign citizens. This piece of legislation specifically declares that the United States is a war zone, and is at least partially under enemy control. It also officially declared that the American people are behind enemy lines- the enemy of course being none other than the American people.
Having stated the facts above and referencing the latest article pointing out these facts, it should be said that Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Mark Udall (D-CO) have tried dilligently to take this message to the people but have been restrained by the classified status of the legislation, and the fact that their repeated requests to Attorney General Eric Holder have garnered no response. These two Senators along with a few others have continually attempted to shed light upon a government which has gone too far in its quest for power and control.
When running for the Presidency in 2008 then Senator Obama professed that his administration would be the most transparent in the history of our great nation; I call upon the press and my fellow citizens to force the President to live up to his statement regarding transparency in government along with his interpretation of Executive powers afforded him through the National Defense Authorization Bill and the renewed Patriot Act. These weapons should not be deployed in the United States at all, and certainly not with the intended targets being citizens of The United States. This order should at the very least be rescinded and made public so as to ensure it is never repeated.
