Editor’s Note: Has our government increasingly used our tax dollars on a stealth war against us?

 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and other Department of Justice agencies have spent almost $5 million during the last few years on an underreported domestic drone program that a government auditor says lacks sufficient privacy safeguards.

  A report released on Thursday by the Justice Department’s  internal office of the inspector general revealed that the DoJ  has invested roughly $4.9 million since 2004 on unmanned aerial  systems (UAS) that allow for law enforcement agencies to conduct  surveillance from the sky during certain missions.

  Robert Mueller, then the head of the FBI, acknowledged only this past June that surveillance  drones have been deployed within the United States.

It’s very seldom used and generally used in a particular  incident where you need the capability,” he said at a  Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

But with this week’s report, the department’s inspector  general determined that the FBI is in need of an updated set of  guidelines to govern the way unmanned systems are deployed with  respect to the constitutionally-guaranteed protection from  unreasonable searches.
