U.S. military drones are being used to spy over American territories, the Pentagon says.

USA Today says a report written by a Pentagon inspector general reveals that drones have gone on "non-military missions" over the past 10 years and are "always in compliance with existing law."

The report, obtained through a Freedom of Information request, quotes a military law review article that states "the appetite to use [spy drones] in the domestic environment to collect airborne imagery continues to grow, as does congressional and media interest in their deployment."

It notes that between 2006 and 2015, there have been less than 20 non-military missions.
