“‘Beast of Kandahar’ was probably flying against targets inside Iran”

Afghanistan is pretty well covered by US surveillance capabilities – aircraft, ground systems, other mechanisms, but Kandahar is not very far away from the Iranian border, says investigative journalist Wayne Madsen.

The US Air Force confirmed for the first time on Tuesday that it’s using in Afghanistan a stealth unmanned aircraft known as the “Beast of Kandahar.”

“It is the latest technology in unmanned aerial vehicles, and unlike other vehicles it can move in and out of the targeted country at very high speeds – and it obviously raised a few eyebrows when it was spotted in Kandahar,” Madsen said.
