Holder finally answers Rand Paul on drones; Paul responds, ‘Hooray’ and will drop opposition to Brennan

Attorney General Eric Holder finally responded to Sen. Rand Paul via letter, after the senator’s thirteen hour filibuster yesterday.

Here is the letter:

The answer is “no”:

“Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on an American soil,” Holder wrote, per Carney. β€œThe answer is no.”

Heh.

Seriously. In any event, Sen. Paul was pleased … after he finally received the letter himself.

Sen. Paul announced to Dana Bash on CNN that he will be dropping his opposition to Brennan’s nomination for CIA Director.

Vote now set to commence shortly.
