Emmy-winning journalist, Shad Olson, explores the controversy over U.S. drone policy, both at home and abroad.

While technological sky supremacy gives America strategic superiority on the battlefield, the prospect of drone proliferation over U.S. cities is causing concern about loss of privacy, an end to Habeas Corpus and judicial due process and the destruction of Constitutional rights.

South Dakota U.S. Senator John Thune and former U.S. Senate candidate, Sam Kephart share their views about the consequences of domestic drone deployment in the fight against terrorism.

Originally aired on KNBN-TV, (NBC) NewsCenter1, Rapid City, South Dakota in February 2013.

The drones have been being used by the border patrol since 2005, and the Grandforks ND local police say they have used two unarmed Predators based at Grand Forks Air Force Base to fly at least two dozen surveillance flights since June. The FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration have used Predators for other domestic investigations, officials said. The debate is to late they are already using them against the public.

I suggest the Minot Daily do some investigative reporting and find out what the people who are involved with the drone program have to say about what they do.

The real story is much different and you won't read about it in the controlled media here in murka.

Can you envision a drone operator of armed drones going totally mad, like the recent police officer gone postal, and inflicting heavy losses by controlling all armed drones across the US?

Wouldn't that be fun?
