  • TSA wants pilots, plane operators on lookout for Calif. suspect
    As officials continue to hunt for former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner, who is wanted for fatally shooting three people and wounding two others, the Transportation Security Administration warned pilots and plane operators to be on the lookout for him. "It is believed that Dorner received flight training during his time in the U.S. Navy, but the extent of his potential flying skills is unknown," a notification stated. "While there is no specific information at this time that Dorner is considering using general aviation, TSA requests that operators use an increased level of awareness concerning any suspicious activity during the coming days."

  • Lawmakers are concerned about use of UAVs to fight terrorism
    President Barack Obama's aggressive stance on using unmanned aerial vehicles to kill Americans suspected of being al-Qaida allies has made Democrats and Republicans nervous. Lawmakers are urging tighter oversight of the president's UAV program. "It just makes me uncomfortable that the president -- whoever it is -- is the prosecutor, the judge, the jury and the executioner, all rolled into one," said Sen. Angus King, I-Maine. "So I'm not suggesting something that would slow down response, but where there is time to go in and submit it to a third party that is a court, in confidence, and get a judgment that, yes, there is sufficient evidence here."
