We think of unmanned drones snuffing people out over Afghanistan and Pakistan. And you may have heard that the US is operating drones down on the Mexican border. But now it turns out the Mexicans are running their own drones along the US border. And one of them crashed this week into a backyard in El Paso.
When we first heard about this I was like: they have drones too? And then we found out they’re part of a big shipment of drones the Mexicans bought earlier this year from Israel. Eric Lach has the story.
