|U.S. Customs and
Border Protection Hermes is towed for takeoff at Ft. Huachuca,
Arizona in preparation for border mission this past summer. Artistic

Ground crew and pilots were Israeli, with ties to the Israeli
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."
