Send In The Drones!

Don’t bother… they’re here.”

Jillian Rayfield of TPM tells us the FAA counts 285 active “Certificate[s] of Authorization” issued to a variety of entities, the feral gummint and the military, of course, but also state and local governments and a plethora of law enforcement agencies… not to mention real estate firms, academic institutions and (improbably) resorts.

Enjoy your privacy. You may have it in the bathroom of your own home, if it has no window, but I wouldn’t bet on it anywhere else in the world. As Rayfield points out, this is quite literally a page out of Orwell’s 1984
