5 pilots tell same story.

“we don’t know who’s doing this, we don’t have enough data to track this.

 

“These things would be out there all day,” said Lt. Ryan Graves, an F/A-18 Super Hornet pilot who has been with the Navy for 10 years, and who reported his sightings to the Pentagon and Congress. “Keeping an aircraft in the air requires a significant amount of energy. With the speeds we observed, 12 hours in the air is 11 hours longer than we’d expect.”

Article does provide one earthly explanation:

““there are so many other possibilities — bugs in the code for the imaging and display systems,”

 

I wouldn’t call a coordinated hoax against military personnel a “bug,” but something far more deliberate and sophisticated.

 

The pilots began noticing the objects after their 1980s-era radar was upgraded to a more advanced system.

Voila.

Like a good non-fake journalist I checked the source, and voila! It’s gone. Winston Smith lives.

Torture propaganda was approved by the white house.

New Documents in Zero Dark Thirty Affair Raise Questions of White House-Sanctioned Intelligence Leak and Inspector General Coverup

Especially disturbing are the lengths to which DoD’s then-Acting Inspector General Lynne Halbrooks went to suppress details of the collaboration between Hollywood and the CIA.

…Halbrooks ultimately issued a sanitized account of what happened and withheld the embarrassing material from Congress and the public.

Feinstein’s panel produced a reportsaying that most of the “documents, statements and testimony” connecting the use of torture and the bin Laden mission were “inaccurate and incongruent with CIA records.”

David Swanson reviews the new expose by James Risen, who is being persecuted by CIA and Obama for telling the truth.

The root of the problem, as Risen sees it, is that the military and the homeland security complex have been given more money than they can reasonably figure out what to do with. So, they unreasonably figure out what to do with it. This is compounded, Risen writes, by fear so extreme that people don’t want to say no to anything that might possibly work even in their wildest dreams — or what Dick Cheney called the obligation to invest in anything with a 1% chance. Risen told Democracy Now that military spending reminded him of the Wall Street banks. In his book he argues that the big war profiteers have been deemed too big to fail.

Pentagon Funds New Data-Mining Tools to Track and Kill Activists

 

Last year, government documents revealed that Department of Homeland Security had customized its Predator B drones, built originally for foreign military operations, for domestic surveillance tasks and to “respond to emergency missions across the country,” including “identifying civilians carrying guns and tracking their cell phones.”

These drones are now being used on U.S. soil by the FBI, Secret Service, Texas Rangers and some local police forces. The DHS had also proposed to arm its domestic fleet of border patrol drones with “non-lethal weapons designed to immobilize TOIs [targets of interest]” – an option also being pursued by local police agencies that want to arm drones with rubber bullets, tear gas and other riot control weapons.
