CBS LAS VEGAS- Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., spoke for over 12 hours on the Senate floor yesterday, staging a filibuster of John Brennan’s nomination to be CIA director. According to Carney, Paul asked, “Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?” In his response, also read by Carney, Holder replied succinctly: “The answer to that question is no.” Should the U.S. President have the authority to target an American on U.S. soil with lethal force? Callers tell us if they think the President should have this power. Dave Ramsey, Host of the Dave Ramsey Show on KXNT from 6:00PM-9:00PM, talks about his Building Your Legacy event that is taking place tonight at Canyon Ridge Christian Church.
CodePink activists protest against John Brennan, the hard-nosed architect of the US drone war against Al-Qaeda, outside the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, DC, on February 7, 2013. Brennan's confirmation hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee for the post of head of the CIA, thrusts a rare public spotlight on President Barack Obama's covert drone use and associated missile strikes, which have become a hallmark of his presidency.
