Sensitive U.S. Sites Vulnerable to Drone Attack, DHS Assessment Says

“Sensitive sites across the United States are vulnerable to attack by store-bought drones, according to a new assessment by the Department of Homeland Security office in charge of sharing threat information with first-line personnel.

The DHS ‘intelligence assessment’ does not cite any actual or known drone-related threats within the U.S. homeland, but it cites several recent instances overseas when terrorist groups and criminal organizations used drones ‘to support illicit or violent activities.’

In particular, the assessment notes ISIS used aerial drone footage ‘to support an assault’ on an oil refinery in Iraq last year, and at least two thwarted terror plots inside the United States over recent years were to include the use of drones, the assessment says.”
