Rand Paul Suddenly Okay with Domestic Drone Strikes

http://www.mediaite.com

Remember when Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) stood up on the Senate floor for nearly 13 hours in an ideological protest of the Obama administration’s hypothetical authority to use drone technology to kill U.S. citizens on American soil?
