A strange sentence... from Rand Paul's WaPo op-ed "My filibuster was just the beginning."
If you had asked me 5 years ago in what situation would an American Senator say that, I would have imagined a severe breakdown in our legal and political order.
Why would someone professing to care about the Constitution only want to know that an American has to be charged with a crime before he's blown away by something called a drone. Where's the right to counsel? Where's the proof beyond a reasonable doubt at trial? And if the sentence is death, isn't it cruel and unusual to suddenly bomb a man out of existence?
The Senator sounds as though he is begging for the last shred of pretense that we have a Constitution.
