The Navy is inaugurating its first squadron using remotely piloted drone aircraft Thursday, formally adopting the unmanned technology amid debate over its growing use in warfare — and potential deployment by law enforcement and other domestic agencies.
Military officials say an investigation is under way after two U.S. Navy helicopters dipped temporarily into the waters of Lake Tahoe, before righting themselves and landing at a nearby airport.
An Alabama teacher who used a hypothetical assassination of President Obama as an example in a geometry lesson says he is sorry.
Lt. Aaron Kakiel told the Associated Press that the squadron will be aboard one of the Navy's new Littoral Combat Ships in about a year.
He says most Navy drones now are operated by contractors overseen by military personnel.
