Threat to filibuster Brennan over possibility of "targeted killing" policy inside U.S


#1

Here’s today’s follow-up on Senator Rand Paul’s earlier threat to filibuster John Brennan over the possibility that the Obama administration will conduct its “targeted killing” policy inside the US. This is a more firm commitment to blocking Brennan until Paul gets an answer from the White House. Is this a silly question? Not exactly. As the New York Time’s Andrew Rosenthal wrote this morning, Attorney General Eric Holder put the “targeted killing” policy entirely in terms of overseas operations last March, and the memo leaked to NBC oddly didn’t restrict the authority for such actions to the American border. Be sure to read Allahpundit’s excellent rundown from yesterday for the background on this question:
