Meant to combat next-generation Soviet fighters that never materialized, the F-22 Raptor has been hounded by problems that culminated in the death of one of its finest pilots, Jeff Haney, in November 2010.

The struggle to right the F-22 has been long and filled with pitfalls and at least two of the pilots assigned to fly the Raptor are now refusing to do so.

Mark Thompson at Battleland reports that F-22 pilots Josh Wilson and Jeremy Gordon will be on CBS’ 60 Minutes tonight explaining why they’ve opted out of flying the Air Force fighter.

The pilots main concern is that the plane does not provide adequate oxygen and leads to hypoxia, which is what brought Jeff Haney to his death in 2010.  READ THE REST HERE

 

The US Military Wants To ‘Microchip’ Troops

DARPA is at it again. This time, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has announced plans to create nanochips for monitoring troops health on the battlefield.

Kate Knibbs at Mobiledia reports the sensors are targeted at preventing illness and disease, the two causes of most troops medical evacuations.

What seems like a simple way of cutting costs and increasing efficiency has some people concerned that this is the first step in a “computer chips for all” scenario.

Bob Unruh at WND reports one of those opponents, Katherine Albrecht, co-author of Spychips says “It’s never going to happen that the government at gunpoint says, ‘You’re going to have a tracking chip. It’s always in incremental steps. If you can put a microchip in someone that doesn’t track them … everybody looks and says, ‘Come on, it’ll be interesting seeing where we go.’  READ THE REST HERE

‘We Are Preparing For Massive Civil War’ Says DHS Informant

Before It’s News

In a riveting interview on TruNews Radio, Wednesday, private investigator Doug Hagmann said high-level, reliable sources told him the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing for “massive civil war” in America.

“We have problems . . . The federal government is preparing for civil uprising,” he added, “so every time you hear about troop movements, every time you hear about movements of military equipment, the militarization of the police, the buying of the ammunition, all of this is . . . they (DHS) are preparing for a massive uprising.”

Hagmann goes on to say that his sources tell him the concerns of the DHS stem from a collapse of the U.S. dollar and the hyperinflation a collapse in the value of the world’s primary reserve currency implies to a nation of 311 million Americans, who, for the significant portion of the population, is armed.
