Waar of hoax?
Weer een heksenjacht tegen DJI?

Hundreds of Chinese-manufactured drones have been detected in restricted airspace over Washington, D.C., in recent months, a trend that national security agencies fear could become a new means for foreign espionage. From a report:The recreational drones made by Chinese company DJI, which are designed with "geofencing" restrictions to keep them out of sensitive locations, are being manipulated by users with simple workarounds to fly over no-go zones around the nation's capital.

Federal officials and drone industry experts have delivered classified briefings to the Senate Homeland Security, Commerce and Intelligence committees on the development, three people privy to the meetings said. A spokesperson for the Intelligence Committee -- which has been kept closely apprised of the counterintelligence risks -- declined to comment on the briefings. The other two committees did not respond. This story is based on interviews with seven government officials, lawmakers, congressional staffers and contractors. They were granted anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly about private and sometimes classified discussions involving government officials.

Ik heb het artikel gelezen, zo lang was het niet, maar het is genuanceerder dan de titel doet vermoeden.
Er wordt geschreven dat de officials niet geloven dat de Chineze regering hier achter zit. Maar dat de toename van goedkope, geavanceerde drones in het begrensde luchtruim boven Washington, D.C. 'in potentie' gevaarlijk kan zijn.
