Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

The Pentagon is planning 50 percent more drone flights by 2019

After a brief lull, the military is doubling down on drones. A new report from The Wall Street Journal
details the Pentagon's new plan to increase daily drone flights by
half, raising serious questions about the future of military drone
strikes. The Pentagon currently directs 61 daily drone flights, almost
all of which are used for remote surveillance. The expansion would give
the Pentagon even more reconnaissance data, expanding capacity in new
programs from the Army and special contractors.

Only a vanishingly small percentage of the flights involve actual
strikes, but they'll provide a crucial first step for strikes in new
regions, which will require reconnaissance feeds for targeting and
command support. Notably, many of the future reconnaissance efforts are
intended to monitor operations in Ukraine and the South China Sea. Thus
far, drone strikes have been largely confined to Yemen, Somalia,
Afghanistan, and Pakistan. The new uptick in reconnaissance missions
also won't affect the CIA's ongoing drone program, which has remained the most controversial, secretive, and deadly of the US's drone operations.  | The Verge

The expanded
drone program, operated mostly by the US Air Force, will allow for
broadened surveillance and intelligence gathering from Ukraine and North
Africa to Iraq and the South China Sea.

"We've seen a steady demand signal from all of our geographic combatant commanders to have more of this capability," Navy Captain Jeff Davis, a Defense Department spokesman, told reporters at Pentagon.

The move would mark the most expansion within the drone program since 2011.
