The Zombies is the name I offer up to the US Military for their newest squadron of Autonomous, Soulless Killers. (It would make a great patch for the pilots… oh right…no pilots.)
Don’t make the mistake of thinking the below linked story of the Military’s exploration of pilotless fighter aircraft is groundbreaking. The research for such a vehicle has gone on for years. The primary problem has been computing power in relation to miniaturization. Well… we moved through that limiting obstacle several years ago.
And here we are today. So secure we have aircraft that work, we announce it to the world.
Here is the story appearing in ‘The Week’.
A Laser armed drone that can kill enemy fighters.
Normally one would assume no need to point out the obvious, but let me take the story line above and modify it a bit.
A Drone Fighter Plane that can kill Fighter Planes… without Human Permission.
For all of you in my tin foil hat club you already get it. For the rest of you who consider yourself more reasoned and rational, what I’m implying here is that a machine which can kill things without a human being involved, has unlimited mobility with hundreds of miles of range and can travel at hundreds of miles per hour might possesses the ever so slight possibility of deciding something other than a desired target of human discretion is valid prey. (An acquaintance of mine just said something humorous to me in his comment section. He said why say something in 10 words when you can use 100. Indeed.)
In other words, you feed this thing and it Will Bite You.
So, of course…
The next logical step is to teach it how to refuel, repair and replicate itself.
I mean Why not? Right?
But don’t worry! We’re working on it!
Now all we need is the finishing touches on Artificial Intelligence… because we just can’t seem to get that part down…
Never mind. Check!
The Future is Bright.
And, it’s Here.

Both have taxpayer-funded Liberal officials trying to suppress the “Why” it happened.
It is a fact that the State Department is not interested in discussing the “Why” behind Benghazi. Hilary Clinton said as much and John Kerry has reiterated her sentiments. Witnesses have been hidden from the press, and Administration officials have derided the press for even asking. The position, as stated by Hilary Clinton, is… “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?” Yes… what does it matter if we have adopted a stance which leaves our Diplomatic personnel hanging out to dry?
But the efforts to suppress the “Why” behind the Newtown shooting has not received much coverage. According to the Washington Post, a bill being quietly pushed through the Connecticut Legislature would allow the victims to decide what information would be made public regarding the event. While this is being couched under the auspices of “Victims Rights”, and the public is being told it is primarily concerning the crime scene photo’s… it would include all aspects of the case. In other words, it would include any notes, ledgers, e-mail, websites, etc. It would basically prevent anyone from finding the “Why” an arguably disturbed but not unintelligent individual would plan, equip and execute such a horrible crime.
Allow me to be clear. I am not waiting with bated breath to see the crime scene photo’s from Newtown any more than I care to see the crime scene photo’s from Benghazi.
However, I do want to see the correspondence surrounding both events. I do want to see what websites and media young Lanza consumed regularly. I do want to understand who thought it would be a brilliant idea to dig up a stupid video to blame the Benghazi assassination on. I do want to see the scribbling’s of a young man who was seeking… something. I do want to hear from the other survivors of the “spontaneous” consulate attack.
There is truth to be found in both cases… and in both cases there are Liberals attempting to shield it from the light of day.
These types of things make me wonder… “Why”.
