Eric Holder Responds to Rand Paul’s 13-Hour Rant With One Word: “No”
Attorney General Eric Holder has responded to Sen. Rand Paul’s 13-hour filibuster filled with paranoid conspiracy theories about drones killing American citizens on US soil, with a single word.
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.
Eric H. Holder, Jr.
And now Sen. Paul is happy.
Paul said Thursday afternoon that he’s happy with the response and that he urges the Senate to proceed to a vote on Brennan’s nomination.
This is going to give the wingnuts who’ve been yelling that they “stand with Rand” a serious case of cognitive whiplash.
