Rand Paul took to the floor of the Senate just before noon EST. He is engaging in a good old fashioned filibuster. He said He will filibuster the senate in regards to John O. Brennan, whom President Obama has nominated to be the next CIA director until he loses his voice or gets more real information on Obama's drone execution program, which has become a major sore point for many lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
“I will speak today until the president responds and says, ‘No, we won’t kill Americans in cafes. No, we won’t kill you at home at night,’” Mr. Paul said early on in the filibuster, that began at 11:47 and showed no signs of slowing more than four hours later.
