FBI Admits Drone Use For Surveillance

    Robert Mueller

    An admission coming from the FBI about drone surveillance in the United States.

    FOX News Radio’s Rich Johnson reports from Washington:

    The question came from Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley. The answer… From FBI Director Robert Mueller.

    (Grassley//Mueller) “Does the FBI own or currently use drones and if so, for what purpose?//Yes, and for surveillance.”

    Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Mueller added:

    (Mueller) “Very, very minimal way – and very seldom.”

    One recent example: A drone the size of a model airplane kept constant watch on the door of an underground bunker in which an Alabama man kept a boy hostage for several days. Mueller says they’re just beginning to write a policy for using drones.
