Rand Paul’s Filibuster


Rand Paul
, Republican Senator from Kentucky and son of Ron Paul, has been filibustering, yes I will say that’s the verb, the confirmation vote for John Brennan,  who would head the CIA.  What is prompting this filibuster is the letter from Attorney General Eric Holder which states that the US has the authority to use unmanned droned strikes on American soil but has no intention of doing so.  The letter was prompted by Mr. Brennan’s written answer last month to questions from the Senate Intelligence Committee, in which he had written: “This Administration has not carried out drone strikes inside the United States and has no intention of doing so.”  It seems as though Paul’s filibuster won’t stop Brennan’s confirmation, but what it is doing, which the Paul family is good at, is raising awareness for an issue and garnering press attention.  And I am glad that there are some politicians who have the guts to do that sort of thing.
