Texas Congressman, in his weekly address dubbed "Texas Straight Talk," warns not only against drone use in foreign countries, but its widespread use in the United States. Are these unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) being used to kill civilians in foreign countries? Is the use of drones helpful in our skies or more of an invasion of privacy?
The loss of innocent lives overseas is horrific and may have some serious implications to our national security if something isn't done to block their destructive use by President.
Journalist Jeremy Scahill calls Obama's actions murder. He said on MSNBC's "Up With Chris Hayes" as reported by the Huffington Post: "If you go to the village of Al-Majalah in Yemen, where I was, and you see the unexploded clusterbombs and you have the list and photographic evidence, as I do--the women and children that represented the vast majority of the deaths in this first strike that Obama authorized on Yemen--those people were murdered by President Obama, on his orders, because there was believed to be someone from al-Qaida in that area."
Talk about this subject is increasing as an article in The Christian Science Monitor asked the question:"Drones over America. Are they spying on you?" Their article points out that perhaps in the next 10 years thousands of these aircraft could be flying over our heads.
The ACLU points out: “All the pieces appear to be lining up for the eventual introduction of routine aerial surveillance in American life – a development that would profoundly change the character of public life in the United States."
Could "Big Brother" be getting BIGGER? Are we allowing the government more and more freedom to watch over our every move? Not that we have anything to hide, but what about the NDAA? Is this one more way where mistakes can be made and innocent civilians in our country can be arrested or worse yet, killed by our own government who should be in existence to protect us?
Next time you hear an aircraft engine above, you might ask yourself, "Is that a drone and why is it flying over my house?" But the problem is, if it is, will we be able to do anything about it if we don't take action now?
