News Summary: Talk of drones over US spawns worry

Associated Press

FUTURE OF THE DRONES: The prospect that thousands of drones could be patrolling U.S. skies by the end of this decade is raising worries about government intrusions into privacy.

MASS CONCERN: Anxiety began mostly on the political margins, but there are signs that ordinary people are starting to fret that unmanned aircraft could soon be circling overhead.

FROM BOTH SIDES: The level of apprehension is especially high in the conservative blogosphere, while civil liberties advocates also worry that government and private-sector drones will be used to gather information on Americans without their knowledge.
