High tech is the wave of the future, and that would obviously apply to international terrorism, at least in FBI Director Christopher Wray’s opinion. Smashing people with cars, bombings at concerts, shooting them with AK 47s or throwing acid in their faces could soon become a thing of the past, as terrorist are claimed to be moving in the 21st century technology-wise and they’ll use drones from now on to wage attacks in the United States.
These were the dire words of Christopher Wray during his Wednesday Congress address, when he testified in a hearing for the Government Affairs Committee and Senate Homeland Security.
I think we do know that terrorist organizations have an interest in using drones. We’ve seen that overseas already with growing frequency. I think the expectation is that it’s coming here imminently. I think they are relatively easy to acquire, relatively easy to operate, and quite difficult to disrupt and monitor.
The same concerns were echoed by the director of the National Counter-terrorism Center Nicholas Rasmussen who also testified during the same hearing:
“Two years ago this was not a problem. A year ago it was an emerging problem. Now it’s a real problem. So we’re quickly trying to up our game. That could be dropping small explosives the size of a grenade. It could be dispersal of toxins, potentially,
Here’s the video:
The thing is, terrorist attacks and threats are always being used by the state to justify increasingly intrusive government, increasing surveillance, increased restrictions on ISP’s, and restrictions on our way of life, yet the same government who slowly erodes individual rights from its citizens allows unvetted immigration from third world countries by the millions.
If Wray is so concerned about weaponized drones dropping anthrax or whatever on US citizens, why doesn’t he stop the Awan-Pakistani spy ring that is still operating in Congress??? A spy network connected to Debbie Wasserman, Huma, Weiner, Pedoesta, the State Department and Hillary Clinton?
Wray is letting a Pakistani spy/procurement ring operate in the Congress and he wants to ban drones?
He is not prosecuting a high official who sold American secrets from an unsecured server to whoever had the cash and he wants to ban drones?
