WASHINGTON (AP) – The FBI is operating a small air force with scores of low-flying planes across the country carrying video and, at times, cellphone surveillance technology – all hidden behind fictitious companies that are fronts for the government, The Associated Press has learned. The planes’ surveillance equipment is generally used without a judge’s approval, and…

    Maybe these planes explain the “chem-trails” the righties have been warning us about.

    I don’t know…just saying. The righties have to be right about something, maybe this is it.

    This isn’t exactly new.
    I remember a case from back in the late 70s where they used a plane to find a pot farm and busted the farmer. His attempt to camouflage his plants as tomatoes by hanging red plastic balls on his plants didn’t work.
    One of the bothersome things they were doing was recruiting civilian pilots to look around for suspicious stuff for the fuzz to look into.

    What are we really seeing here?

    We all know, codeword : “Drugs!” must be a key part of the equation. And the results? Also secret, yet so obvious: Cheap, easy to get drugs for everybody… along with big federal contracts for companies such as Cessna and FLIR as mentioned above.

    I can see how the “meta data” could be used to home-in on signals so these planes can get a more accurate fix on its origin, then relay that to local LE… Neat trick, however, it usually only works on low level dealers, expendable and far removed by several degrees of separation to any significant player. They may catch a big-fish now and then, yet I suspect it’s mostly small fry. And this is just a scaled down version, modeled on what the Air Force has been doing for decades in Central America, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean. The fly the big-boy planes like AWACS filled with so much tech it makes these Cessna’s blush. Of course they are quite a bit more expensive and also have little to show for it.
