    At least he showed everyone what a filibuster is really like, not just an “I object!” .
    It was a stupid subject to be filibustering on because there are already laws pertaining to said subject, just not specifically armed drones.

    Exactly! These laws pertains to whether people CAN be killed, not HOW they can be killed. HOW is a tactical decision made by the FBI, Homeland Security, or some other organization “on the ground”. Lawmakers have no say in HOW.

    I am not a Rand Paul fan, but in his defense, he was one of only 7 in the Senate who voted against NDAA last year, when “CAN” was approved. So I don’t question his sincerity in demanding clarifications (nor Ron Wyden, who also voted against it). But most of the other 12 Senators who supported Rand Paul during the filibuster- they were for “CAN” before they were against it. That was only a few months ago.

    What would cause them to flip-flop so quickly? Could it be that the GOP took a beating in November, and many of the 12 are up for re-election in 2014?

    An unarmed drone can save lives as well as an armed drone can save lives. There is no need for a Federal armed drone here that I can see. As for in Somalia, Pakistan or in other hostile regions, definitely, yes. As for the nationality of a said combatant/terrorist, it does not matter. Perhaps you would like to volunteer to “arrest” these people so they could be brought to trial as one lawmaker suggested. If so, Good Luck.

    So where were all the filibusters protesting the gutting of the Bill of Rights by Ashcroft, shrub, and the so-called “Patriot Act”?

    here is a thought, If the drone is in NY then can it only carry 7 bullets?

    Whatever has been tried over seas eventually comes back over here tested and ready to use. And our govt would do so if they could find the best means. The whole Drone operation was denied for some years. They still keep much of it secret so yes I guess I’m concerned. But I am no “red neck.” Don’t stereotype please?

    Just another example of how out of touch the GOP is.

    Most Drones fire HELLFIRE missles, these missles have a 20 pound warhead of C4, imagine the collateral damage of one of those missles fired into a city building, or any populated area?
    The colateral damage would be catastrophic and the return questionable.
    Not to mention the little fact that most major cities have SWAT teams to deal with terrorist situations.

    @M Ster

    The Republicans took a Beating in November 2012? How can that be when they Kept Control of The House and gained Seats in The Senate to keep the Democrats of having a Super Majority of 60?

    @Justice22

    Then you agree Obama using Armed Drones against us is not a good thing to do correct?
