What Rand Paul Got Right

I think the American people are cynical of the current administration due to the constant attack and usurpation of our constitutional rights. So ya, when the USAG says we can kill Americans on American soil whenever we deem it, I kinda have a problem with it. Future incidents like Waco will instead of being a stand off where the press has a chance to document things, will be a drone strike, and reported as a natural gas explosion.

Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Paul's stated reason for taking to the floor and talking for 13 hours was that the Obama administration wouldn't give him a straight answer on the question of whether the president can unilaterally order the killing of American citizens on American soil with "lethal force, such as a drone strike ... and without trial."

In other words, if an American member of al-Qaeda is sitting at a Starbucks, can the president sic one of his death-dealing robots on him?
