Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul threatened again Wednesday to filibuster the National Defense Authorization Act unless the Senate votes on an amendment guaranteeing the right to trial by jury for American citizens accused of terrorism.
"In fact, I'm appalled that anyone would think that we could arrest anyone in our country without charging them and giving them a right to a trial," Paul said in a speech on the Senate floor.
The controversy stems from a provision critics have interpreted as allowing the indefinite detention of terrorism suspects. Its supporters say it only applies to those who have waged war against the United States.
