Trust Me You Don't Want This Plane known as a "Polecat" Flying Over Your House

File this under cool stuff and the War in Afghanistan.

First reported back in April by the Shephard Group a UK based publication and online news service and more recently photographed in Afghanistan by a freelance photog for Defense Secret a French on line blog.

The Lockheed Martin "Polecat" UAV has been operating in a cloud of secrecy and with some rather amazing success. Given its stealth nature, the drone is no doubt in use in the war on terror by giving US forces plausible deniablity while entering Pakistan airspace on seek and destroy missions.
