Well I think we all figured this was happening.
Question for you guys. How does the difference between using drones and helicopters or even a telephoto lens differ in your mind? Drone use for surveillance doesn't really bother me more than any other type of snooping but it seems people are far more upset about it. I'm certainly open to having my opinion changed. Is it the fear they could be armed?
Because we all know that the government agents always follow the rules, right?

Asked by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) to elaborate, Mueller added, “It’s very seldom used and generally used in a particular incident where you need the capability.” Earlier in the morning, however, Mueller said that the agency was only now working to establish set rule for the drone program.
So what that means is, when they feel it necessary to spy on us they will in a hear beat.
The drone program should have had a set of rules in place a long time ago to prevent just this kind of thing from happening.
All I can say is it's payback time, and not a moment too soon.
For the love of our once great nation, UNITE and stop these atrocities from happening to us.
March on Washington, march on your state capital, DEMAND a permanent end to drone use spying and data basing of the American People!

How in the world am I free when I can't go to the airport the way I used to and fly like a normal average American citizen, born and raised on this very soil? No, I have to allow some stranger to touch my body, OR, I can walk through a body scanner and get radiated. My ONLY free choice here is to NOT fly. How is that freedom?
How is it freedom when you are being spied on and monitored? You realize that every single person on this site has or will be monitored at some point?
How am I free when I say I don't want the extra $180.00 pulled out of my pay checks each month against my will for Obama's health care? How am I free, if I am mandated to find a way to pay my health insurance plan even if I can't afford to, now that the money has been pulled out of my check to support someone else's health care?
You know, if I can't buy car insurance, I walk, take a cab, or bus. I have ZERO free choice here, when it comes to my missing money now out of my pay checks. I have no choice with Obama care, cause I'll get fined if I don't comply.
How about the ability to own a cell phone and talk on that phone to my mother, friends, or whoever, freely, without NSA tracking what I do?
I don't care about other countries right now! I care about MY country and the huge freakin mess we are in. We need to get out of other people's affairs and start paying attention to our own. We have BIG problems here! And I guarantee that this is the tip of the iceberg.
