PALMDALE -- Military predator drones will soon be patroling the skies of Southern California, looking for illegal immigrants and smugglers at the border.

The unmanned and unarmed planes called Maritime MQ-9 Predator B Guardian Unmanned Aircraft Systems are being unveiled Monday. The aircraft will fly above the California-Mexico border using radar and long-range video cameras in search of illegal immigrants crossing into the country.

U.S. Adds Drones to Fight Smuggling

PALMDALE, Calif. — To help spot and track smugglers, the Homeland Security Department is expanding its use of drones, the unmanned aircraft widely used in Iraq and other war zones, beyond the Mexican and Canadian borders to the Caribbean and possibly other seas.

The department, through its Customs and Border Protection division, already operates five of the aircraft, known as the Predator B, along the Southwest border from a base in Arizona and the Canadian border from an installation in North Dakota.

Like the drones used by the military, these drones can fly long ranges at high altitudes and are difficult to detect. But the drones that have been used at the border since 2005 are for surveillance and tracking and do not carry weapons.

The department on Monday unveiled a new drone loaded with special radar, cameras and sensors. Built for $13.5 million by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems here, it is designed for maritime use. It features wide-range radar that gives a more sweeping view of the ocean than any of the government’s fleet of manned aircraft.

The first maritime drones, about the size of a small turbo-prop commuter plane, will start flying in January off Florida, a smuggling hotbed.

A second drone is scheduled to take flight by summer in the Gulf of Mexico.

Both ultimately will also be used to patrol off the coast of Central America and Mexico, where drug traffickers use watercraft to bring cocaine from South America.

Officials are not sure if the drones will be used off or over Southern California. While there has been an increase recently in the smuggling of drugs and people on the seas there, congested airspace from several commercial airports and military bases could make use of the drone difficult.

A Customs drone — like all others controlled by human pilots from a remote location — that was flying over a sparsely populated area crashed into an Arizona hillside about 100 yards from a house in 2006, causing no injuries or property damage. The National Transportation Safety Board attributed the crash to human error and made several recommendations to make the program safer, most but not all of which were adopted by Customs and Border Protection.

Still, Homeland Security officials praised the aircraft as a safe and important tool that over land has contributed to the seizing of more than 22,000 pounds of marijuana and the apprehension of 5,000 illegal immigrants.

“This is an extraordinary step forward,” said Adm. Thad W. Allen of the Coast Guard, which will join Customs and Border Protection on drone missions. “It will help us immeasurably.”

Michael C. Kostelnik, an assistant commissioner at Customs and Border Protection, said the drones could fly more than 20 hours at a time, more than double the typical manned mission of about 10 hours.

They travel 275 miles an hour and, Mr. Kostelnik said, are far quieter than conventional aircraft to the point of being virtually imperceptible to anyone on the ground or seas below them.

“Right out of the chute they could do things nothing else could do,” said Mr. Kostelnik, standing next to the whale-gray aircraft, which was formally presented to his agency at an afternoon ceremony here.

The drones do have limitations. They operate under what is known as visual flight rules, which means the weather must be clear enough for controllers to see where it is going, somewhat limiting its use.

The program has its critics. The union for Border Patrol agents has criticized the drones as costly and inefficient and has suggested the money would be better spent on adding workers and equipment on the ground.

“Unmanned aircraft serve a very useful role in military combat situations, but are not economical or efficient in civilian law enforcement applications,” said T. J. Bonner, president of the Border Patrol union. “There are a number of other technologies that are capable of providing a greater level of usefulness at a far lower cost. It appears that the contractors have once again managed to sell a bill of goods to the politicians and bureaucrats who oversee the procurement of technology designed to secure our borders.”

naaaahhhhhhhhhhhh, just a coincidence that this has always been the plan...

U.S. Adds Drones to Fight Smuggling

That photo with the American flag behind that terrorist industrial complex creation is the most blatant illustration that it now stands for a totally fascist, criminal police state.

MIC NCIS conditioning for false flag-AFRL/GIG-UAV's to murder Americans
http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=118525.0

With that being said, allow me to rewrite the OP article to reflect some real truth:

PALMDALE, Calif. (Rewritten by Anti_Illuminati) — To help spot and track defenders of the criminal Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, Bill of rights, those preparing to defend themselves against our forced vaccination intentions, the Homeland Security Department is expanding its use of drones, the unmanned aircraft widely used in Iraq and other war zones, beyond the Mexican and Canadian borders to the Caribbean and possibly other seas, as well as nationwide, domestically in every state in the U.S.

The department, through its Customs and Border Protection division, already operates five of the aircraft, known as the Predator B, along the Southwest border from a base in Arizona and the Canadian border from an installation in North Dakota.  

Like the drones used by the military, these drones can fly long ranges at high altitudes and are difficult to detect. But the drones that have been used at the border since 2005 are for surveillance and tracking and can be outfitted with tactical nuclear weapons, or hellfire missiles, etc. for false flag terrorist attacks which may be blamed on Iran, or a "homegrown" "cyber criminal/hacker/terrorist" that would actually be carried out by DHS and/or Northcom, or the Air Force Research Laboratory.

The department on Monday unveiled a new drone loaded with special radar, cameras and sensors. Built for $13.5 million by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems here, it is designed for maritime use. It features wide-range radar that gives a more sweeping view of the ocean than any of the government’s fleet of manned aircraft.

The first maritime drones, about the size of a small turbo-prop commuter plane, will start flying in January off Florida, a smuggling hotbed.

A second drone is scheduled to take flight by summer in the Gulf of Mexico.

Both ultimately will also be used to patrol off the coast of Central America and Mexico, where drug traffickers use watercraft to bring cocaine from South America.  We are claiming that we give a damned about these drug traffickers--which we do only if they are competing with our CIA drug trafficking.  But otherwise we hope that this will help condition the public that our UAV's are in use for military operations other than war, because we always need a replacement for the cold war, and even the "war on terror" with these new "contingency operations" which we already revealed even in 1995 in the Pentagon/DoD document titled "Defense Mapping for Future Operations"--our own admission that the "war on terror" was slated to be the full blown preparation to make the United States our future battleground--to rape, torture, and blow the guts out of children, women, and men who dare oppose globalization and the total evisceration of their inalienable human rights.  All this, we openly admitted a full 6 years before our grand false flag attack to accelerate our World Government agenda.

Officials are not sure if the drones will be used off or over Southern California. While there has been an increase recently in the smuggling of drugs and people on the seas there, congested airspace from several commercial airports and military bases could make use of the drone difficult, which is why we are supplanting even the FAA's current NAS Architecture version 6, with a globally integrated Ptech based artificial intelligence, fully global information grid internetworked air traffic management system.

A Customs drone — like all others controlled by human pilots from a remote location — that was flying over a sparsely populated area crashed into an Arizona hillside about 100 yards from a house in 2006, causing no injuries or property damage. The National Transportation Safety Board attributed the crash to human error and made several recommendations to make the program safer, most but not all of which were adopted by Customs and Border Protection.

Still, Homeland Security officials praised the aircraft as a safe and important tool that over land has contributed to the seizing of more than 22,000 pounds of marijuana and the apprehension of 5,000 illegal immigrants.  Internal FUOU, classified documents reveal that these drones will be used to help apprehend millions of those who oppose United Nations laws, and oppose eugenics, and our totally tyrannical, fascist global supply chain monopolistic infrastructure.

“This is an extraordinary step forward,” said Adm. Thad W. Allen of the Coast Guard, which will join Customs and Border Protection on drone missions. “It will help us immeasurably, because we serve the bankers, and I have been integrated into Northern Command to increase our chances of killing the remaining patriots who are not killed by our bosses bio-engineered RNA chemtrail super flu components when it merges with the already globally dispersed 1st half from our bioterror vaccines that we are prepared to blame American citizens with carrying out should we be forced to go that route if there is too much awareness that the flu pandemic coming to the U.S. is not a natural occurrence.  It is a damned good thing that we have pulled off false flag terror attacks like 911 and the Anthrax attacks, because we are confident that at least a fair number of people could be convinced that we have been hit with bio terror (and cyber terror) to have a way to get the American People fight with each other (propagandizing that deaths from our bioweapon are caused by other Americans who refused to take our vaccine), so that less of our Northcom mercenaries will get shot and killed in self defense by U.S. citizens defending their inalienable rights.

Michael C. Kostelnik, an assistant commissioner at Customs and Border Protection, said the drones could fly more than 20 hours at a time, more than double the typical manned mission of about 10 hours.

They travel 275 miles an hour and, Mr. Kostelnik said, are far quieter than conventional aircraft to the point of being virtually imperceptible to anyone on the ground or seas below them.

It appears that the contractors have once again managed to sell a bill of goods to the politicians and bureaucrats who oversee the procurement of technology designed to secure our borders.”  But of course, the aforementioned is a complete psyop, to provide some level of skepticism to the public.  We are glad that the general public has virtually never heard of our CWID drills, for if they stumbled upon that, and researched it thoroughly, we would be completely exposed and would not be able to sell our agenda--in the same way that those cyber terrorists revealed extremely damaging information about us in CLIMATEGATE.
