Rand Paul’s 12-Hour Filibuster of John Brennan in 120 Seconds: VIDEO


As you may know, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) engaged in a more-than-12-hour filibuster yesterday of John Brennan's nomination to director of the CIA, much of which was about drone surveillance and warfare.

In case you missed it, Politisphere has polished down the marathon session to a spare two minutes:

Paul's filibuster, which lasted more than 12 hours and was joined at times by several other senators, focused on the government's use of drone strikes. Paul specifically expressed his extreme disapproval of Attorney General Eric Holder's refusal to rule out using drone strikes against American citizens on American soil, which Holder said in a recent letter to Paul could be ordered in "extreme circumstances."

Paul ended the filibuster after making a joke that nature was calling.
