Commentary and Opinions

Recent reports indicate that prior to committing theft, organized car-theft gangs are doing their homework. They are targeting specific car rental facilities, conducting exhaustive site-studies of the facilities to identify vulnerabilities that will make their job easier.

The event was hosted by the Gulf Coast Leadership Conference.
“We are entering an era in which unmanned vehicles of all kinds will take on greater importance in space, on land, in the air and at sea” -- President George W. Bush’s address to the Citadel, Dec. 2001.
