Rand Paul asks one of those controversial questions in the news recently whether this administration will target American citizens on American soil with drone strikes, a hypothetical scenario Paul sees as both possible and a good enough reason to hold up the confirmation of John Brennan as head of the CIA.. But Rand Paul, being the rightwing nutcase he is does what they always do, takes his fearmongering to absurd conclusions to destroy whatever merit his original assertion had.

SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY): "We are talking about someone eating at a cafe in Boston, or New York, and a Hellfire Missile comes raining in on them. There should be an easy answer from the administration on this. They should say, 'absolutely no, we will not kill Americans in America without an accusation, a trial and a jury.'"
