Fooled Friday: Google Murder?, No Missiles, The Pack, Ghost Calls, and Secret Airbase

After giving consideration to the quality of reading material I've been perusing to dredge up the stuff I post here on Fridays - I came to the conclusion that some of it might be a bit suspect. In fact, I might even go so far as to say believing what you read here on Fridays without doing some fact checking, could quickly lead to you being "fooled".  And with fact established, off we go..... 

Lie Number 1: This first story is certain to prove my point. Somebody is telling the truth, and somebody is lying. Smack dab in the middle, Google Maps is being blamed for a murder. Who is getting fooled in the story below?

Lie Number 2: OK, I've heard this one before. No more do I say there will never be armed drones flying over the U.S., and then some Texas law man announces that is exactly what his department is planning to do. Now, the FAA is saying there will never be armed drones flying over the U.S. Since one of my favorite bands is The Who, I've got a certain tune rolling around in my head (for you youngsters who have no clue about the British Invasion, the song would be: "I Won't Get Fooled Again").  More below:

Lie Number 3: After growing up 95 miles from Green Bay, Wisconsin, when I saw this story's title, I just knew what it had to be about. But darn, I got fooled:

Lie Number 4: Where is Whoopie Goldberg when you need her? If her character in the movie Ghost had any validity whatsoever, she could tell us if these calls were coming from beyond the grave, or are just a case of "swatting". Since Whoopie isn't anywhere to be seen, I guess I'll just have to leave it up to you to figure out if Katie is getting fooled:

Lie Number 5: Oh, gees, folks who know how to use Google Maps, Bing, OSM, etc. can get so carried away with their perceived photo interpretation skills. Now we have some aerial imagery hobbyist who is claiming he has found a TOP SECRET American drone base by using Bing. Seriously, could that be right?  It's him versus a bunch of guys in black suits trying to hush the story. Ding - time's up, you have to decide who is telling the truth and who is twisting the facts - and let's hope you don't get fooled:
