Bipartisan filibuster of a Senate nomination by Rand Paul over
"Obama administration's lack of clarity over whether a suspected terrorist who is an American citizen can be targeted with a drone strike within U.S. borders."
and the democrats won't go with him
Democratic Whip Dick Durbin of Illinois objected to Paul's request that the Senate take up a non-binding sense of the Senate resolution stating that the U.S. government cannot target "noncombatants" with drones on American soil.
The WH may not want to say that explicitly and keep the options open. They don't have to say anything. It is, however, good to remember who was asking the question and who objected, for future.
