In the course of confirmation hearings for John Brennan as director of the CIA, the question was posed, "Can the President order the killing of an American citizen on US soil?"  In this commentary, Clayton Morgareidge reads from two recent articles about Rand Paul's filibuster of the Brennan nomination, asking how did such a question become a serious one, and whether the Democrats should have supported Paul.

Thje two articles are "The Submissive, Indifferent Democrats" by Falguni A. Sheth, and "Rand Paul's Wrong on Drones -- Just Like Everything Else," by Joshua Holland.
