How About Setting the Stage for a "Terrorist" Attack?

Wayne Madsen Report - Home:
"The FAA has already had to cede control of the airspace over the U.S.-Mexican border to the Department of Homeland Security for border patrol operations involving unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). That and the Pentagon's desire to put UAVs in operation over some of America's busiest commercial airspace has tempers running even higher in the FAA. Military sources also report another potential danger involving UAVs. If a UAV, particularly a Predator, 'accidentally' strikes a commercial passenger plane in mid-air, the ground destruction would mimic that from an attack by a surface-to-air missile. Depending on the height of the collision, the presence of weapons on the UAV, and the composite materials of the drone, there would be little or no trace of the drone material left after such an impact, the sources claim. Given the Bush administration's push for another 'terrorist' incident in order to advance its agenda, an 'accident' involving a UAV and commercial jetliner, perhaps over a heavily populated area, would be quickly blamed on 'terrorism' involving the U.S. enemy du jour."
