    I think it's likely there never were any drones. Like the sub-head of the above article says,

    "...the media and the FAA regularly uses drone panic to enact strict regulations."

    But, this is the funniest part:

    "...top secret government efforts to locate lost nuclear bombs."

    Yeah, right. There's lots of lost nukes strewn about in Colorado. Those darn things fall out of Fedex trucks all the time. :)

    "Mass panic"? Panic is a sudden onset of overwhelming fear and extreme anxiety that can affect many people at once. There is absolutely no evidence of this sort of behavior in any of these drone sightings or in the subsequent response. Such language is thus sheer hyperbole.

    Furthermore, much of this article reflects the special interests of drone hobbyists and manufacturers, and not the public interest at large. As someone who considers himself hyper-sensitive regarding any effort to abridge the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution, I wouldn't consider tighter regulations over the use of drones, given the obvious threat that they could pose in the hands of rogue actors or even irresponsible hobbyists, to be any more a curtailment of individual liberty than a prohibition against yelling "fire" in a crowded theater is an abridgment of free speech. Clearly there are common sense limits and the public does not need to be conditioned to accept such regulations, especially by means of some elaborate false flag operation conducted by the FAA. To suggest otherwise borders on conspiratorial lunacy.

    If we can believe the veracity of the original witnesses and that these flights have stopped, then what has most likely happened is one of two things: 1) the original purpose behind these flights has been achieved and the flight phase of this program has ended; or 2) the flights have drawn too much attention and have been quietly stopped or perhaps relocated.

    In either case, I stand by my conviction that - if we can believe the veracity of the original witnesses that there were indeed drone swarms being flown at night - that this is also a highly classified program. Therefore, we will never know the real truth. And within this void, the conspiracy theories will continue to thrive.

    Mass hysteria/collective obsession I might buy, but mass panic is a bit much. I also think anyone who tried to tell that sheriff he didn't see anything might get knocked on his ass.

    We've seen Turber before, take anything he says with a grain of salt. He's claiming to be a "USAF Intelligence Expert" based on four years in the USAF over thirty years ago where he would have attained the august rank of buck sergeant. (You can look him up on LinkedIn.)

    He's a go to guy for second and third tier radio shows/podcasts (and tabloids, obviously), having not bubbled up to the C2C level yet. I've heard him on a couple programs, he's full of s#*t.

    A few of us have suggested the technology exists to identify drones and locate those flying them. Now we see a company in the UK has developed and deployed integrated systems to perform both functions. Will be interesting to see if they develop a portable/mobile system for applications like the Colorado scenario where the effort would be short term, as opposed to being fixed in place like at Heathrow or some other permanent high value facility.

    Whelp, last night on Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis, the question was raised if these were possible Tic Tac related craft. Saw that on one other article today as well. Just throwing that out there as info on what the latest is. Will try and go back and find the links to these when I have a few moments.
