Are there new rules on the horizon? How can we help policing UAV technology's illegal use and proliferation to wrong hands?
I'll save everyone some reading and sum this up:
His genius master plan involved stuffing these completely unsuitable planes with half a dozen grenades, using Google Earth for his GPS coordinates, and either a rocket motor-cellphone detonator or a "high torque servo" to pull all the pins!
I'm pretty sure these planes need a substantial dedicated runway, and plenty of flying practice. He likely would have crashed them on takeoff -- a Darwin Award nominee, to be sure.
No doubt. I just hope the RC planes were not also bought with federal funding. Because they could have gotten the same results with a few $50 hobby king EPO models...
Is the FBI or this Physics grad smart enough to realize that the inside of both planes is substantially dedicated to moving air - without which ...
Yeah, I'm sorry - after reading this - I mostly feel sorry for this guy - who is clearly addled, and missing any sense of scale - essentially, he believes that after a few ounces of c4 are delivered to the pentagon - (pg12) He and "CW" would be able to end the US with a few AKs?
Makes you wonder how religion affects a rational mind.
Christopher Hitchens wrote about Islam, that the problem is not that they WANT 72 virgins - but rather that they ARE virgins. (most young males don't get much in a polygamous society).
Here in the US we also compel religion (School, pledge to the under god etc); I hate to think what that does to a mind as malleable as say Rick Perry - for example...
He also bought model rockets - so there's another Industry that should probably be pre-labelled "suspicious activity".
and a cellphone don't forget.
Indeed the cellphone appears to be the only genuinely effective device in this saga.
And there goes Google Earth...pg 21
