I'd just send out some drones as bait, monitor the shiat out of em, hopefully backtrace or triangulate the signal of whoever tapped in

knbber2: Not necessarily true; the primary feeds that are used go over encrypted satellite links. The ones that are potentially vulnerable are those transmitted directly to ground units that can't see the satellite feeds, these are not used a majority of the time.

A TFer and you missed this opportunity? Your post should have read:

I've spent over 1000 hours flying predators, and am a former fighter jock.

So I am really getting a kick out of these replies.

Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about.

But trust me.... You don't.

I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you dont know what you are talking about.

This is how bad info gets passed around.

If you dont know about the topic....Dont make yourself sound like you do.

Cuz some Farkers belive anything they hear.

One good scenario from this would be some jackhole Taliban farker watching the feed and suddenly recognizes his house seconds before the Hellfire missile turns him into goo.

It seems possible that the rationale is something like "We're leaving it open on purpose. You can watch the feed all you want, but there's nothing you can do to stop the sidewinder from turning you into mist. And with a little luck that video will go viral and all your little terror buddies will see what's coming for them if they don't change their ululating ways."
