Rand Paul: I Don’t Think Obama Will Kill Americans

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), filibustering John Brennan’s nomination to lead the CIA on Wednesday in objection to the Obama administration’s policy on targeted drone killing, ceded that President Obama personally was not the issue.

“I frankly don’t think he’ll be killing people in their homes tonight,” Paul said.

At stake, Paul explained, was the prospect of unchecked power afforded to the executive branch if clear rules governing lethal force within the United States are not established.
