Eric Holder has stated that "under extraordinary circumstances" the President could use drones to attack and kill an American citizen on American soil.

Am I being overly alarmist? Unfortunately, I don't think so.

Today at 11:45 AM, Kentucky Sen. Ran Paul took to the Senate floor to filibuster John Brennan, who is President Obama's nominee to lead the CIA. President Obama's recent nominees have faced rocky roads - Chuck Hagel for Defense more than all the others - but none rose to the level of a grandstanding filibuster.
