Rand Paul To CIA: "Can You Kill With Drones In The USA?"

Rand Paul’s Third Letter to the CIA: Can You Kill with Drones in the USA?
This letter is a few days old, but is very important for every American to be aware of. Essentially, Rand Paul is threatening to filibuster Barack Obama’s nominee for the CIA, John Brennan, due to his refusal to answer a simple question:

Do you believe that the President has the power to authorize lethal force, such as a drone strike, against a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil, and without trial?

This should not be a complicated question to answer, yet it seems Obama, Brennan and pretty much every other little power consumed bureaucrat is incapable of doing so. Below is Rand Paul’s letter reprinted in full (my emphasis added).

Of COURSE they thinks it's legal. THAT was the whole point to their (unbelievable, but true) SECRET legal brief. "We have the legal basis for justifying the killing of American citizens, but it's secret and you'll have to trust us". This is what they, our "representatives", told us, "we, the people" about how and why they can kill us (!!). AND the brief was INTENTIONALLY vague about whether or not they could do it on AMERICAN soil! THESE are the people who we trust to PROTECT us?! Looks like what we REALLY need someone to protect us against THEM!

Hackers will have a field day re programming drones to kill people and destroy buildings,etc.Imagine an out of control drone having to be shot down by a jet fighter.

If they answer yes, they have officially declared war on the American people. If they don't answer they have unofficially declared war on the American people. Either war it will be time to prepare for the next civil war. It wont be "Red Dawn". That was a silly CIA approved movie to prepare resisters for slaughter. Real resistance will be done with counter-measures and loosely organized underground resistance.

You all know nothing about what they do. Please don't act like you do. General public doesn't know 99% of the ops that get pulled of.
