FBI: Surveillance cameras not being being used to profile
The agency has been criticised by civil liberties groups that the guidelines unfairly target innocent Muslims

WASHINGTON — FBI Director Robert Mueller told Congress on Wednesday that the bureau's domestic surveillance guidelines are being used properly and that agents are not employing them to target people for investigation based on race.
The FBI director's defense of the guidelines at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing followed criticism by civil liberties groups that the guidelines unfairly target innocent Muslims.
