Right...???

I think we had more coherent and professional behaviour and interview skills from the people who ran our high school news.

What in the world was that??? I give Rand credit just for investing 3 minutes or whatever it was of his life time for this.

Seriously, I would have to have a good alcohol buzz to be in the same room with those people. Can you imagine having a hard day at work and coming home to this????

p.s. ya, just put the popcorn in the microwave thanks. lol

Dana Bash

just got smashed.
She looked like she almost swallowed her tongue.

If you don't know the definition of imminent

Perhaps you should use a dictionary. It is a very exact term, lady. Politicians don't get to "decide" what it means! It already has a very well-defined meaning!

One step at a time.

First, non-combatant citizens on American soil.

Second, non-combatant citizens not on American soil.

Third, non-combatant non-citizens anywhere.

OR

Go in a different direction and talk about spying on American citizens, drones or not.

I'm calling her crazy as requested.

The second reporter, the one relaying the question to Rand, did NOT ask the same question given to her by the studio reporter, she paraphrased it into, "Did the Time Square guy pose an imminent threat"?, NOT "Would this have warranted a drone strike if there was one overhead". I think they messed this up completely. Am I crazy?

Taking a stand on principle...

in spite of the odds against you, has always been a force for good in the world. Check out this post, "Rand Paul: One person can make a difference".

You fools!

I am shaking my head at the people on here who LAST NIGHT were like "YAY RAND! I USED TO H8 YOU BUT YOU ARE BEING AWESOME RIGHT NOW!"

and NOW, a FRIGGEN CLIP OF CNN is WARPING YOUR MIND BACK INTO "oh Rand, he's evil and bad and is ok with us dying, and isn't saying enough about NDAA BLAH BLAH BLAH"

WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?

I mean seriously

I'm going to put you in front of a camera, in front of the nation, with Dana Bash's ugly ass horseface blabbing stupid questions at you, and then we'll see how great at interviewing and staying true to your message you can be. Goddamn it! Quit BITCHING ABOUT EVERYTHING.

A pic please...

Can you post a pic, so we can see your faults? Then we can decide what animal you look like, and make fun of you.

Dropping an Hellfire Missile in Times Square?

I would hope that we would be in the state of full blown war, not just trying to take out a "bad" guy.

Am I missing something?

Striking distance

Maybe Mayor Bloomberg will be within striking distance, sipping a regulation-size beverage and talking about the need to ban guns.

No, you are exactly right. I

No, you are exactly right. I would like to hear a scenario which would justify using a drone-strike within the US whether on a citizen combatant or foreign terrorist which would not jeopardize the rights and lives of the citizenry and which could not be remedied through already available means.

The entire problem was that the administration claimed it could use drones to take-out a combatant within the US - that means they could take-out someone determined to be a combatant who had innocents in their vicinity.

Holder should have said "We have no authority to take anyone out with a drone strike except a foreign invasion force in time of actual war." or something along those lines.

Makes me wonder if anyone is talking the real points:

and if not, why?

"Holder should have said 'We have no authority to take anyone out with a drone strike except a foreign invasion force in time of actual war.' or something along those lines."

...

I don't want to hear any.. there are none that would justify

a drone strike by our military inside our borders which would thereby threatening the lives of peoples rights. This whole discussion from everyone "on high" is suspect.

"there are none that would justify a drone strike by our

military inside our borders..."

Well, if we were invaded by an enemy, I could see dropping missiles on enemy camps. I am talking about being invaded by Russia, China, etc...another country, not about groups of US citizens...but then I think of the “civil,” or not, war. What if there was a civil war? What if the civil war had been now instead of then? Were all sources of artillery used in the civil war?

CRAZY BITCH.

"Government is the entertainment division of the military-industrial complex". - Frank Zappa

They do not realize that there are no rules and instructions

for when to use drones. Drones are tools in the hands of the police state to use at their discretion. And that is a fearful idea, considering the swat teams that have gone in with Loaded rifles and full combat gear to organic farms. The police need some rules about when it is acceptable to use this kind or any kind of armed force!

Also they do not realize that a drone takes out other people around the person they are aiming at.

I cannot believe the ignorance of these reporters. Wev are never going to educate these kind of minds. Dumb and dumber.

Due process, out the window.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, CNN!

Didn't the

fbi support the times square guy by providing him the materials? Funny how they always leave parts like that out of the conversation. These people seem blood thirsty.

wow, the thought caught with

wow, the thought caught with your pants down, comes to mind.....oh, msm, i never thought to think that you might slip up one day, with this video, im hopefull......

Thanks Rand, still aways to go, even though the end game is still far, you've brought us a little closer

Side note
I still hold reservations about Rand, but promised myself to see what he does, judge him for his actions, this was a good one, but i hope its one of many, if so, then i can see myself trusting him.......clue: bring the troops home, and out of other peoples countries.....im hoping hes playing a deeper game inside the senate, because anything other then that would keep me mistrustfull

Saying that, im glad not for rand, but for you guys here, for those who live in america, might not amount to anything, but god damn it, its something, .........know what i mean

Heres to that proverbial promised land we proverbialy and globally fight for

Is a Person with a Gun an Imminent Threat?

This whole idea of someone having a bomb, therefore they are an imminent threat, makes me nervous because those drone videos of two men making a gun deal out of their trucks may soon be considered an imminent threat. Or, simply having a gun could be an imminent threat in the near future as these drones are capable of detecting firearms.

Christo Garcia

Yes they are..

So in the future, when you get pulled over and a drone is now accompanying police stops.. if anything goes wrong.. your ass is toast.

If cops will lie by throwing a weapon on the ground next to you and they'll lie about beating you senseless, then they'll lie about imminent threats.

Rand is one of them.

"Rand is one of them."

I know I just listened to that interview and it is almost as if Rand is giving permission to drop missiles in the US.

From the extreme...to the middle which is extreme too. Who is talking about what an hellfire missile looks like when it explodes?

I cannot believe this is even being talked about. Why do they need to use a drone? They have a whole airforce already.

"They have a whole airforce already."

That's just the beginning of the problem..

Keep in mind all that you said.. all that I said and the fact that we're talking about the military conducting strikes inside of our border.

So Rand, Cruz, Lee and Amash are not only skipping over these abhorrent affronts to Liberty, they are helping it along.

We have no Liberty candidates in office.. None..

And I think if you have time you should start a post with that title. People need to see and understand...especially if Friends of Liberty are being deceived...ok here I am telling you what I think you should do again, but I have a basketball game to go to in 30 minutes and dinner to serve :)

People need to know there ARE NONE if that be the case.

Why was I not surprised to see that this would somehow

include that jackass dana "bash"?

@ the "anchor" in question; Way to show your journalistic integrity and impartialness. It seems like I actually saw you salivate while you tried this "gotcha" move. The only thing missing was your knife and fork in your hands. Way to also thank someone who just a few hours ago, drew a line in the sand and fought for your due process rights, as well as your right to live.

CUNT!

Basically, in order to stop a

Basically, in order to stop a bomber, for instance Timothy McVay, from setting off a truck bomb in front of the Federal Building in OKC, instead a drone would just missile strike the truck, killing more people than the truck bomb would have, but at least the bad guys couldn't take credit for it.
