Published by CREW
On June 26, 2013, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the FBI seeking information about the FBI’s use of drones to conduct domestic surveillance. In the wake of FBI Director Robert Mueller’s admission last week during a congressional hearing that the FBI had used drones domestically in a supposedly limited number of instances, CREW seeks to learn the source of those drones, how the FBI paid for them, who trained the FBI in the use of drones, any policies concerning the FBI’s use of drones — including legal justifications — and any memos of understanding DOJ or the FBI may have entered with other federal entities concerning drone use. CREW also requested expedition in light of the compelling public interest in this issue, particularly in the wake of other revelations about the extent to which the NSA and others are secretly gathering information about U.S. citizens.

For your information, Congress excluded three discrete categories of law enforcement and national security records from the requirements of the FOIA. See 5 U.S. C. § 552(c) (2006 & Supp. IV (2010). This response is limited to those records that are subject to the requirements of the FOIA. This is a standard notification that is given to all our requesters and should not be taken as an indication that excluded records do, or do not, exist. You may file an appeal by writing to the Director, Office of Information Policy (OIP), U.S. Department of Justice, 1425 New York Ave., NW, Suite 11050, Washington, D.C. 20530-0001, or you may
submit an appeal through OIP’s eFOIA portal at 
http://www.justice.gov/oip/efoia-portal.html. Your appeal must be received by OIP within sixty (60) days from the date of this letter in order to be considered timely.
