Drone Program Worries Rand Paul

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Wednesday night that support for President Barack Obama’s drone program was “very scary and worrisome” and feared it could open a “Pandora’s box” about government’s power. Paul was on CNN discussing his consideration of filibustering Obama’s nomination of John Brennan for CIA director, doubling down on his criticism of Brennan’s question-dodging regarding drone use at his confirmation hearing last week. “If you’re not going to answer, No,’ I think that means you’re telling us, ‘Yes’ — you believe that the president has the power to kill an Americans in America. That is appalling,” Paul said on CNN/Kevin Cirilli, Politico. More here.

Question: Do you have same reservations as Sen. Rand Paul re: the Obama administration's drone program?
