Two and a
half years after the founders of American
Border Patrol recommended their use, the U.S. Army has begun
using its own unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to patrol the border.
According to a report in today's Sierra Vista Herald, the Hunter
UAV has been pressed into service, flying out of Ft. Huachuca,
the Army's UAV training center.
"It's about time our government
began using its real capabilities to solve this problem,"
said Glenn Spencer of American Border Patrol. ABP was first to
use UAVs on the border with the Border
Border Patrol spokesman Andy Adame said
"UAVs play an important role."
