Lindsey Graham: John Brennan Has His Vote For CIA Director Because Of Rand Paul Filibuster

""WASHINGTON -- Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Thursday he would vote for CIA director nominee John Brennan because Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) filibustered his appointment over questions about the administration's drone program.

"I was going to vote against him until the filibuster, so he picked up one vote," Graham said, laughing to reporters in the Capitol.

"I thought Brennan was arrogant, a bit shifty," he said, but added that he was going to vote for Brennan because the vote had become a "referendum on the drone program."

"Where were all these people during the Bush administration? I never remember anybody accusing President [George W.] Bush of 'We're going to kill someone in a cafe,'" Graham said.(Paul, of course, was not in office during the Bush administration.)

Graham's reversal is notable since he had previously threatened to delay the nomination over the administration's account of the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi. On Thursday, Graham said he had gotten what he wanted.

Graham qualified that he had "no problem" with Paul trying to get answers on whether the president has the authority to kill an American citizen inside the United States.

Paul held an old-fashioned talking filibuster that lasted almost 13 hours over Brennan's nomination. He objected to a letter he received from Attorney General Eric Holder in which the administration refused to rule out the option of killing an American citizen on U.S. soil.""

----------

Now we have real, actual Republiclowns turning on the fascist Teabaggers, Rand Paul And Ted Cruz!!

Paul gets spanked this week, Cruz was laughed out for his Joe McCarthy style stupidity a couple of weeks back. Cruz was editor of the Harvard Law Review, but he complained about all the commies at Harvard.

What sort of idiot would agree to be editor of Harvard Law Review when he's surrounded by Communists??

Ted Cruz, that's who!! Which, if his claims are true, makes him a fellow traveler, providing cover for the other commies in Harvard.

Note he didn't say a word about Harvard commies until a decade after he left Harvard.

The man is a fool and a demagogue.

The Tea Party continues to be the laughingstock of American Politics!! All 8% of them!!

BWAHAHAHAHAHA

Rand Paul Slammed By WSJ Editorial Page Over Epic Filibuster On Drones

""The conservative Wall Street Journal editorial board slammed Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) Thursday for his almost 13-hour filibuster against John Brennan, the nominee for CIA director, over the fact that Attorney General Eric Holder said the U.S. government had the legal authority to kill an American citizen on U.S. soil.

"Calm down, Senator," wrote the editors. "Mr. Holder is right, even if he doesn't explain the law very well. The U.S. government cannot randomly target American citizens on U.S. soil or anywhere else. What it can do under the laws of war is target an "enemy combatant" anywhere at anytime, including on U.S. soil. This includes a U.S. citizen who is also an enemy combatant."

The Journal board is hawkish, to be sure. But Paul's move found support in unlikely conservative quarters. The Heritage Foundation, where David Addington, the architect behind many of President George W. Bush's policies in the wake of 9/11 and a former aide to Dick Cheney, is a top official, said that it supported the filibuster. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, meanwhile, tweeted her support of Paul, while not saying exactly whether she supported the drone program.

In the end, 15 senators joined the filibuster in support of Paul, including Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Sens. Ron Wyden of Oregon and Dick Durbin of Illinois were the only Democrats to speak.""

Actually, there are a lot of catches to most things in war, but "Though civilian casualties from drone strikes rose, the total of civilian deaths by airstrikes for the year fell after the U.S.-led coalition implemented stricter measures to prevent innocent people from being killed."
Besides, Dumbya killed maybe hundreds of thousands of innocents, including his own countrymen due to his own hubris, incompetence, and arrogance...
The U.N. said most of the civilian casualties from drone strikes appear to be the result of weapons aimed directly at insurgents but some may have been targeting errors.
It calle
It calle what? Do you speak English or were you having a meltdown?

Oh - silly me! When all the Democrats voted for the Iraq War, it was just GW that killed people, but now that Obama has his own Executive Branch drone program, aw shucks, so what, it's only 800 or so.

Silly me. Guess I didn't get the Moonbat memo you get.

The specifics of those cuts indicated on a line graph, however, were still nowhere to be found.
The sad truth is Obama is not interested in cutting spending frugally. He actually wants to spend more than he cuts while raising taxes yet again.

It was like pulling Teeth to get clarity to a simple question’ Does the President have the Constitutional Authority to Kill an American Citizens on US Soil!! The DOJ responded:
Attorney General Eric Holder wrote Sen. Rand Paul,R-Ky., to confirm that President Obama does not have the authority to kill an American on U.S. soil in a non-combat situation!!

A couple of years ago you'd have never caught me posting for 12 straight hours because the phone would ring 5-6 times a night (and it'd be a different dude every time!!!).

Bush said you could kill them so long as you first called them Enemy Combatants.

""Sound familiar? Happened nearly 9 years ago, I'm sure the hue and cry from the right was as loud then as it is now. Or perhaps not...

11/03/2002

Al-Harithi was traveling with Kamal Derwish (Ahmed Hijazi), a US citizen, and Derwish's killing was the first known case of the U.S. government killing a U.S. citizen during the "War on Terror".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abu_Ali_al-Harit...

U.S. Citizen Among Those Killed In Yemen Predator Missile Strike

Additionally, Hijazi was killed in a country considered at peace with the United States.

http://tech.mit.edu/V122/N54/long4-54.54w.htm... ;

So it's ok for Bush to kill American citizens, but not Obama??

You really are stupid.

Another fourth-grade reading level troll. Lily clearly stated that there was nothing wrong with being or looking gay; being or looking like Willard Mittens--not so much.

The President does not the authority to kill any US citizen he wants.

Evidently, Rand Paul thought using a drone makes a difference.

You're just a lonely drunk who spends his sad, lonely life on Topix with his menagerie of sockpuppets.

While you tell lies about make believe children, a wife you never had, and a life you can only imagine from the confines of your wheelchair.
