Senator Rand Paul ‘really troubled’ by drone strikes on American citizens

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) told  Wolf Blitzer late last week on CNN’s The Situation Room that he was “really troubled” by the Obama administration targeting American citizens with drones who are suspected of supporting Al Qaeda or being involved in terrorist plots without any judicial review.

Paul says, “I’m concerned about a bunch of people from the executive branch sitting around at a table with flash cards” making the decisions on who gets killed and who doesn’t.

The Senator from the Bluegrass State points out the case of the 16-year-old US citizen son of  American-born al Qaeda leader, Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a separate drone strike from his terrorist father.

Dr. Paul calls for judicial review, possibly through a FISA court and try American citizens that are traitors for treason. “I don’t think that killing someone without any judicial oversight is an appropriate activity for the President”, Paul said.
