Eric Holder: 'The President has no authority to use weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil'

Eric Holder: 'The President has no authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil'

The following is the letter sent to Rand Paul by Attorney General Eric Holder:

Dear Senator Paul:

It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question: "Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?" The answer to that question is no.

Sincerely,

Eric Holder

I heard Mike Lee's "no" vote

on cloture. Did anyone get Rand's vote?

SteveMT's picture

I listened for it but didn't hear it. Did he vote?

Rubio voted "yea" of course.
Barrasso voted 'nay."

Just heard Barasso, Cruz and Paul all voted "NO"

on Brennan confirmation!

New question must now be asked...

Now I'm curious, what about "non-weaponized" drones to "spy" on Americans?

It seems the letter from Holder could be interpreted by the administration that they CAN use "non-weaponized" drones to "spy" on Americans without a warrant.

Your thoughts on this question would be appreciated. I started a new thread on this topic:

Shepard Smith Said Rand Paul Needed "Face Time"

so he chose drones...What an idiotic statement..

Does the president have authorization? No.

Now c'mon. Was that so hard!

Apparently, it was.

It took long enough to finally come to that obvious conclusion.

So it was another show?

He's voting for the guy he filibustered for 12 hours based on a 3 sentence letter that carries no weight of law? I'm glad I never really trusted the who filibuster show because I would have felt pretty well duped right about now.

Fox News' Shep or Shemp Smith Goes Bonkers!!

Because he believes the Senate waisted 12 - 24 hours waiting to find out if the administration will kill Americas sitting in a cafe..

StandForRand

I stood with Rand Paul The entire 12 Hours..I'm proud of the Junior Senator from Kentucky..

He is not a junior in my mind...HE IS A GIANT!!

Rand, One day when you have gained enough experience in the Senate, we will allow you to run for the "People's House"

lol..

Rand Paul Made The Difference - A Great Man of Principle

Isn't it funny how one man can stick to his principles and effect change...One man can indeed make a difference and this filibuster proved it..

Rand Paul's stock just went through the roof. All America have a new hero now to rally behind..

Congratualtions to Rand Paul for holding to the principles of civil liberty and the Constitution...

Bravisimo!!

I had a correction for you to change it from

Fox News to Faux News but, as soon as I went to type my reply, you changed it completely and left the bastards out! Thank you!

"Not engaged in combat"

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Exactly, this accomplishes

Exactly, this accomplishes nothing good. They have basically left the door open for using drones in the exact manner they initially intended... to take-out "domestic terrorists" in any manner, at any time, in any situation they see fit.

Nah, it does mean something -

Nah, it does mean something - it makes Rand look authoritative in the eyes of everyone, in both parties. And it makes Obammer and his henchmen look silly - because they are.

got the video right here!

it's from the neoCon outlet National Review, and the clip itself is from Mrs.Greenspan@MSDNC, but it's the first one I could find.

Spread them far and wide!
