Do you agree with FBI Director Robert Mueller that being more transparent about the agency's surveillance methods "would be educating our adversaries as to what our capabilities are?" <More Info>
During an oversight hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday, FBI Director Robert Mueller admitted the FBI uses drones for surveillance on U.S. soil. When asked if he would be more transparent on their surveillance methods, Mueller said, "There is a price to be paid for that transparency, I certainly think it would be educating our adversaries as to what our capabilities are." The director also stated that the FBI has and will continue to weigh the possibility of publishing more information about its spying habits.
