    "Paul began a talking filibuster aimed at challenging the Obama administration's policy on drone usage."

    Thank Heaven SOMEONE is talking about drones.  I have to say that drone usage isn't something that can be laid at the feet of the Republicans.  At least I don't recall ever hearing about drone use during the GWB administration.  Even Dick Cheney wasn't THAT sleazy or low-class.

      The Bush crime family introduced death by Drone to the world.

      Armed Predators were first used in late 2001 from bases in Pakistan and Uzbekistan, mostly aimed at assasinating high profile individuals (terrorist leaders etc.) inside Afghanistan. Since then, there have been many reported cases of such attacks taking place in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.
