So, Senator Rand Paul spent thirteen hours filibustering the Senate confirmation of John Brennan yesterday. Today, the Attorney General, Eric Holder decided he’d answer Rand Paul’s questions;
Dear Senator Paul:
It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question: “Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?” The answer to that question is no.
Still, Brennan passed relatively easily on a bipartisan vote of 63 to 34.
I guess the Obama Administration was thinking that Paul was getting too much good press from his theatrics yesterday and decided that they needed to nip it in the bud and finally answer the questions.
Thanks to MCPO USN (Ret.) for think to the letter.
