Rand Paul Threatens Hold on Brennan Nomination for CIA Director

It looks like the good Senator is uncomfortable with someone who doesn't think it's wrong to potentially kill US citizens with drones INSIDE the United States.  We should all be uncomfortable.  From USA Today:

Paul said he would do "whatever it takes" to delay Brennan's confirmation until he directly answers whether American citizens legally can be killed by drone strikes within the United States.


"He was asked a very specific question. . . 'Can you kill an American with a drone in America?' And he refused to answer the question," Paul said. "I find that very, very worrisome (and) we're going to do whatever it takes to get the answer. Can the government, does the government, the president himself, claim the power to unilaterally kill an American in America without a trial?"
