With each new tech invention arrives the phenomenon of how quickly it can be weaponised, from servers to self-driving cars; there is always a fixation with causing harm to others from certain sections of society. As Drones are becoming more popular with the mainstream, so have the coined IS or ISIS or whatever David Cameron insists on calling them, have reportedly noticed.

An unnamed counter-terrorism source told the Express that terror groups had beentrying to launch a drone-borne bomb attack for some time, as these machines are getting more hi-tech every year.” This has echoed a report which was published In March by the House of Lords EU Select Committee which highlighted some of the risks derived from the rapid increase in the use of commercial and civilian drones for services including photography and land surveillance.

So is the threat which is stated within the report genuinely authentic? Possibly, Drones are a convenient way to have your very own miniature air weapon. But one aspect which frustrates me is the use of the phrase “Unnamed counter-terrorism source” If the threat is substantial then we the public need to be correctly informed by a well-known and respectable official, an Unknown Source could lead to an individual with an agenda that has no reliable facts.
