Air Force Using Drones To Spy On You But Only If They ‘Pinky Swear’ It Was By Accident


An Air Force intelligence brief states that if American drones capture surveillance footage of Americans, there the data can be stored and analyzed by the Pentagon for up to 90 days. Of course, this can only happen if the Air Force ‘pinky swears’ that it didn’t intend to collect the data it did.

According to the brief, dated April 23, the Air Force cannot conduct “nonconsensual surveillance” on Americans. There is a reason for that. It’s called the Fourth Amendment.

However, the document also states, “Collected imagery may incidentally include US persons or private property without consent.”

The instructions then continue to affirm that the Air Force can take advantage of the data for “a period not to exceed 90 days” to assess “whether that information may be collected under the provisions of Procedure 2, DoD 5240.1-R and permanently retained under the provisions of Procedure 3, DoD 5240.1-R.”

The Air Force will determine the use of this data for 90 days based on whether, “persons or organizations reasonably believed to be engaged or about to engage, in international terrorist or international narcotics activities.”

Obviously if they can obtain the data ‘incidentally’ and see a use for it, then they can pass it along to other government or intelligence agencies. This begs the question that if they do, in fact, get the information, can they not simply pass it off before 90 days is up to another agency who is not bound by this “90 day” rule? It seems this would be a loophole to keep the information indefinitely. If you were thinking that was a silly question, the document seems to answer in the affirmative:

“Even though information may not be collectible, it may be retained for the length of time necessary to transfer it to another DoD entity or government agency to whose function it pertains.”

This should concern every American as Congress has already passed legislation to have 30,000 drones in American airspace by 2020.
