Long Range Strike Bomber to be unmanned? Directing drones?

Comment from Colin Clark of Breaking Defense yesterday in talking to the head of the Air Force's bomber and ICBM fleets, Lt. Gen. Stephen Wilson:

Finally, I asked Wilson whether the Long Range Strike Bomber would command fleets of drones. He reconfirmed that the bomber itself would be "optionally unmanned". When I pressed him about the bomber directing other aircraft, he very politely declined to answer. The lid remains on.
