FBI Director Robert Mueller admitted to Congress on Wednesday that the bureau uses unmanned drones for surveillance on U.S. soil.

In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, he said such drone use is done in a "very, very minimal way, and very seldom."

However, Mr. Mueller's admission looks certain to fuel mounting concern about the government's surveillance practices and the rules regarding the use of unmanned drones both domestically and internationally.
