    Splendid. Lovely. US Tax dollars at work right?

    From Christian Science Monitor:

    2. A ‘ubiquitous’ surveillance system

    It’s the highest-resolution video camera yet created, which means that a drone with the 1.8 gigapixel video surveillance system hovering nearly 20,000 feet in the air can track a six-inch object across an entire city.

    Known as ARGUS, it can also archive the equivalent of some 5,000 hours of high-definition footage each day, experts say. That would enable the US government to create a giant, searchable video library to track a person or a moving object months, or even years, in the past.

    Critics worry that it could create an Orwellian scenario in which every moment of a person’s life could be shadowed and logged.

    The critics are late to this game! We are in a Orwellian society already. Cameras in the streets, in police cars, in tolls, in retail stores, outside homes, and in some cities in every corner so now in more high resolution drones. Also the government is buying so many drones to keep a camera on every part of the country including the farmland since they are very interested in the people that live in the farmland.

    Those same drones also have under-wing pylons. The kind used to mount hellfire anti-tank missiles. They’re great for killing people.

    Agree, who knows what else is there and we are not aware of that. It is not matter anymore of try to hide, it is about not to give them reason to be suspicious.

    The old saw is that they can read a license plate from space so this is no surprise.
