Here’s a short segment from a June

21st, 2014 broadcast of MSNBC

News (sometimes endearingly known

as "MSLSD").

The show’s hostess, Alex Witt cites

a Washington Post study, which

found that over 400 military drones

have malfunctioned and crashed into

homes, farms and highways, with this

number is expected to surge as these

drone aircraft become increasingly

deployed over American skies, in

upcoming years.

She interviews journalist and lead

writer of this Washington Post article,

Craig Whitlock, "When Drones Fall

from the Sky," asking him what the

main malfunctions seems to be.

Whitlock cites the number 1 reason

for these mishaps as being due to a

breakdown in the connection with the

crafts’ GPS satellite links, the 2nd

reason being mechanical or electrical

failures and the 3rd being pilot error.

The various branches of the military

have different standards of qualification

for operating drones, with the Air Force

having higher requirements than the

Army but as for domestic use, these

qualifications have yet to be hammered

out by the FAA.

Witt asks if we’ll be starting to see

drones crashing into our windows and

backyards, as these craft begin to be

unleashed over domestic skies, over the

next year and a half and Whitlock says

that, indeed this has already started

happening, to which Witt says, "Well,

you’ve already booked yourself for an

interview with us next week to talk

about that!"
