In the end Rand backed down without a law. I'm sure the lawyers at the Justice Department right now are writing a case for the expanded meaning of the word "combat", in the same way as they did "imminent".
None of this means a thing to Rand; he won his brownie points with the soft heads. He will go right ahead and vote for Brennan.
In case he does read the DP: Gold star, Rand! You've played the game well, and gave your sycophantic "Rand Paul republiCANS" something to talk about. Got to get them ready to throw their cash into the black hole which will be your 2016 campaign.
What we SHOULD be doing, instead of playing politics.
