FBI Director Robert Mueller confirms that Drones have been used inside the United States for surveillance.

Drones are not just used to hunt terrorists in Afghanistan. FBI director Robert Mueller told a Senate committee during the FBI oversight hearing that the bureau has used drones inside the United States for surveillance.

According to Wired, Mueller said that FBI drones are used on U.S. soil in a very, very minimal way and seldom. As long as the FBI is not using armed drones I think we are good. Drones are effective tool for surveillance of dangerous situations. We are also ok with the use of bomb defusing robots. Taking targets out with a drone is though a very different story in my opinion.
