Whether used as military weaponry, another law enforcement tool, or private commercial use, drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles, are stirring debate across the country.
Right now, there is a potential move that would transfer the military's drone program from the CIA to the Department of Defense.
In an interview Thursday with Tennessee Senator Bob Corker, a ranking member on the Foreign Relations Committee, he said he believes there should be Congressional oversight in regards to the military's use of drones.
"That certainly will provide a lot more transparency and reporting because the CIA's activities are covert and unknown to those people who aren't involved in those particular areas," he said.
Senator Corker also said he's concerned about the privacy rights of citizens if drones were to be used domestically, and he needs to study the issue.
