The Predator can provide near real-time reconnaissance using a satellite data link system and perform attack missions as well. It served over the Balkans, Afghanistan, and during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. The most historic use of the Predator and Hellfire missiles occurred when CIA ground forces directed attacks against Al Qaeda forces during the opening months of the war on terrorism
