US shoots down ISIS-operated drone for the first time

QuoteDetails about the drone and the strike are slim, with CENTCOM saying only that the military destroyed a "remotely piloted aircraft and an ISIL vehicle." The strike occurred near Fallujah, which remains controlled by militants.

Speaking with the Daily Beast, Christopher Harmer, a senior naval analyst with the Middle East Security Project in Washington, DC, added that even low-tech drones could be fashioned into deadly devices.

"They don't have reusable attack drones, but I think it is just a matter of time before they jury-rig surveillance drones into flying IEDs," he said. "Basically, they could turn them into little kamikaze drones."

This is the first drone to be shot down by the US-led coalition in Iraq, but officials believe ISIS has several.
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but the citizens capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.

Why not they can pick them up at a hobby store.

This is scary.  I heard that they have used chemicals against some of the Iraqis.  I wonder if they could convert drones into doing that.  Supposedly we have ISIS members here in all the states.  I bet they would love to spread some of that Jihad love around here.
