A small group of U.S. Senators, led by Rand Paul (R-KY), engaged in an epic 13-hour filibuster against drone strikes and CIA nominee John Brennan.
Paul stalled the Senate on Wednesday (and Thursday, he didn't end until 1 a.m.) by decrying the federal government’s use of lethal drones. At length.
The old school tactic forced the Senate to delay the expected confirmation vote on John Brennan's nomination to lead the Central Intelligence Agency.
Rand Paul, who vocally opposes Brennan’s nomination, followed through on his plan to filibuster the confirmation of President Obama’s nominee.
