Rand_PaulCan a drone be used to kill an American in America? 13 Feb 2013 Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul is threatening to block President Obama’s choice to head the CIA until the administration forks over more information about its covert drone program. Specifically, can a U.S. drone be used to kill an American on American soil? Recently-disclosed administration legal documents bless the targeting of Americans involved with terrorist groups abroad. Until he gets answers, Paul says he’s willing to do “whatever it takes” – including a so-called “hold,” which would block the Senate from taking up John Brennan’s nomination as CIA director.
