What Are They Doing With That Predator?
We know the RQ-1 Predator is one versatile little machine, its
Rotax 914 pushing it into all kinds of dangerous airspace over
foreign lands. For that matter, it's soon to be used as a domestic
spy tool, ostensibly to patrol borders; but we have inside
information that it's going to be programmed to follow
[The good news: if you don't want the Predator to keep track of
your every move, all you have to do is take off your aluminum-foil
Anyway, we have this photo of some very clever people working on
a Predator at an undisclosed location, and we were thinking we'd
like to know what they were thinking.
Sure, the Predator was supposed to have been 'only' a
surveillance machine; but, over just the past two or three years,
it has evolved into a Hellfire-carrying instrument of death. What's
the next step for this mindless drone?
Maybe you know what they were thinking. If so,
please send us a one-line idea. We'll pick a few of the best, and
put them on this page in the Friday edition.
