Drone aircraft may prowl U.S. skies

CNET News. reported A House of Representatives panel on Wednesday heard testimony from police agencies that envision using UAVs for everything from border security to domestic surveillance high above American cities. Private companies also hope to use UAVs for tasks such as aerial photography and pipeline monitoring.

This is very good news. I favor modifying the Posse Comitas law to permit the military to enforce the law within 10 miles of an international border, and assigning the military on training missions to help protect our southern and northern borders. They need to know how to do this, so that if they are in Iraq, they can close the borders with Syria and Iran, and by having a regular training program going protecting the US border, they can develop tools like these UAVs that they can then use if they are sent into a war.
