WAPO Reporting: FOUR Air Force Predator Drones Have Vanished Into Thin Air Over Afghanistan!
This is an interesting report because it admits failure by those operating drones, but tries to assure us that there is no reason to believe the drones that vanished were hijacked. The truth of the matter is, that drones CAN be hijacked, as Iran has hijacked two of them that we know of. There is the capability, by tech-savvy individuals, to override the controller and to take control of a drone from another location. Drones are guided by electronic mechanisms, and, as we all know, anything electronic, no matter how highly encrypted, can be hacked. As has also been shown, hackers love the challenge of breaking into encrypted systems, sometimes just for the fun of the challenge, other times for nefarious purposes. – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor
