I am so proud of Sen. Rand Paul for standing on principle. In representing the American people he wanted to know whether or not this administration claimed to authorize drone strikes on American soil against the American people, whether they have the right to shoot citizens on American soil. He needed President Obama and/or Eric Holder to clarify but they refused so he filibustered. This was in the context of John Brennan’s nomination so he was filibustering Brennan’s nomination for CIA director. Go Rand Paul!!! I am so happy that my senator from Pa supported Rand Paul. As the hours of Rand Paul’s filibustering continued to pass more senators supported him. Eric Holder finally caved in and gave an answer. The White House finally responded with saying NO, they don’t have the authority to authorize drone strikes on American soil.
