From Simon Black’s SovereignMan newsletter:
The Pentagon is currently testing high altitude surveillance balloons in several midwestern states.
Flying at about 65,000 feet, the balloons are able to track multiple vehicles at once, in any type of weather, using radar.
The Pentagon says the purpose of the solar powered unmanned balloons is to “provide a persistent surveillance system to locate and deter narcotic trafficking and homeland security threats.”
The data gathered over broad swaths of the country will be saved so it can be rewound and reviewed after the fact.
Big Brother is really watching.
