Rumor Confirmed: Israelis Guarded Our Border
Politically correct Hermes UAV had foreign crew

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Hermes is towed for takeoff at Ft. Huachuca, Arizona in preparation for border mission this past summer. Artistic poster with Hebrew text is displayed inside ground handling tractor. Ground crew and pilots were Israeli, with ties to the Israeli military.
Exporting Our Security
    
Sierra Vista, Az. -- American Border Patrol has obtained exclusive photographs that support the claim that an Israeli crew was operating the Hermes unmanned aerial vehicle used to patrol the U.S. border this past summer. According to reliable sources, the Hermes was used instead of U.S. UAVs to avoid "militarizing the border."
    "Our government has gone completely mad," said Glenn Spencer of American Patrol. "The idea that our borders are being guarded by another nation when we have the full capacity to do so is bad enough, but Israel has been known to spy on us."
