the bigger question is:  when will the fbi and other domestic "enforcement" agencies start routinely using them?

That is a fascinating question.  I wish I asked it.

As you know the FBI has already admitted to using drones for spying in the US.  DHS routinely uses drones on the Mexican border, and police departments in many cities use drones to observe hostage situations.

So far all of them say they have never used an armed drone.  But if the government will seize a town of 32,000 in a search for the Boston marathon bomber, my guess is it won't be long until they are armed.

Sen McCain was shocked to hear about the FBI's drone fleet and is demanding congressional oversight.  Obama's reckless escalation of domestic surveillance is an issue ripe for plucking.  It is an issue that can unite both wings of the GOP and even attract rat support.  It can be explained in simple words and it's pissing off a lot of Obama fans so it could help suppress rat optimism of dear leader. 

I wonder if Snowden has anything left.

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....
...They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security
