On Feb. 21, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said he will use every procedural option at his disposal to block the confirmation of John Brennan for CIA Director.

Paul found Brennan’s answers regarding the use of drones on Americans insufficient at times, evasive at others.

He was particularly troubled by Brennan’s answers regarding the possibility of using drones on U.S. territory; because Brennan would only say the Obama administration “has not carried out” such strikes instead of disavowing the possibility of domestic military action altogether.
