    F.B.I. says it doesn't need warrant to use drones

    The FBI has told Congress it does not need to get a warrant to conduct surveillance with drones, in a letter laying out some of the top federal law enforcement agency’s policies for how it uses unmanned aerial vehicles.

    In a July 19 letter to Sen. Rand Paul, Stephen D. Kelly, assistant director for the FBI’s congressional liaison office, said the agency has used drones in 10 instances, including twice for “national security” cases and eight times for criminal cases. The FBI authorized the use of drones in three other criminal cases but didn’t deploy them.

    Then, in a follow-up letter Mr. Paul released Monday, Mr. Kelly said they don’t believe they ever need to obtain a warrant to conduct drone surveillance as long as it’s done within guidelines.

    Though Senator Paul is ostracisized for his contrarian views, we, as a people need more members of the Congress and Senate to stick their heads up and raise their voices for us and the Constitution, and not just shimmy along being a Yes Man to the system.

    Drones in America is a terrible idea. We don't need 20,000 of them flying around in a decade or two, let alone, being operated by the government and police in our skies. Vote 'no' if you're ever given the chance about drones.

    Surely I cannot be the only one concerned about the fact a Senator and Presidential hopeful seems to have absolutely no knowledge of the laws regarding drone surveillance...

    ^ More support for a totalitarian police state? Do you have any exceptions?

    I fear the USA has trapped itself in bad money, bad policy, bad gov't, and the hole may be so deep that even if we stop digging it won't help. I truly worry about Corporatism. All of us trapped by Big Energy, Big Banking, and the Big Military/Industrial/Corporate complex.

    Thanks for the rosy picture Dave.

    It's possible

    LaRouche hopes to be president, but he's full-on bat **** crazy and has no chance of actually becoming president, so I don't worry about him either.

    I don't know, but it's implied that this is a common expression of your beliefs.

    But, I for one agree with you.

    I think we should not have the right to speak our minds, the government should tell us what to think and believe, that they need to disarm everyone, the government needs open access to our homes at any time, we should have to answer any question even if the answer is incriminating, etc...

    Of course that's what they say. They'll claim to have whatever power they want to use at the time.

    Do I need a warrant to put a CCTV cam in my business? Does the govt need a warrant to put one in a courtroom, or other govt building?

    Does a cop need a warrant to walk around and look at things?
