The surveillance flights comply with agency rules, an FBI spokesman said. Those rules, which are heavily redacted in publicly available documents, limit the types of equipment the agency can use, as well as the justifications and duration of the surveillance. 

Details about the flights come as the Justice Department seeks to navigate privacy concerns arising from aerial surveillance by unmanned aircrafts, or drones. President Obama has said he welcomes a debate on government surveillance, and has called for more transparency about spying in the wake of disclosures about classified programs.

Sorry, but every American should be hoping mad about this.

No one knew about it or admitted it until Drudge broke the story about “mysterious planes”.

And why hide the FBI affiliation?

Everything else has logos on it, except for unmarked police cars which is another topic.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
