It looks to me like the author blathered inchoate about three moral
(read: minor) issues but entirely missed naming a quite pragmatic
one: the CIA or other controllers losing control to a hostile actor.

This is not implausible, we've already seen some college kids spoof
the GPS signal and in Iran, one was landed while under the control
of someone else. Or at least, while not under our control. How long
until one is used to blow up stuff we don't want blown up?
