Sen. Rand Paul Filibusters Brennan Nomination Over Obama's Domestic Drone Policy

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky went to the Senate floor this morning to begin a filibuster of the nomination of John Brennan as CIA head over the Obama Regime assertions of using drones domestically, even going as far as killing US citizens with drone attacks.

You can watch it via C-SPAN live online.

"I will speak until I can no longer speak...."

Joining Paul in the filibuster are Sens. Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and Jerry Moran, as well as one Democrat, Ron Wyden from Oregon.

Why isn't every senator on the floor of the US Senate joining the filibuster. The idea that American citizens who are not terrorists could be targeted on US soil without any due process rights guaranteed by the Constitution should frighten everyone, regardless of ideology.
