I came across this article that supports what I’ve been stating about the Rand Paul filibuster. The right has been promoting the filibuster as having accomplished a concession by the Obama Administration, or at least it’s seen as a step in the right direction. There was no concession whatsoever. Paul should have used his filibuster platform to call out his fellow members of Congress for not repealing or at least modifying the AUMF. Until the right acknowledges who is really to blame for allowing the President complete latitude on who is an enemy combatant and how they are dealt with, there will be no resolution on American citizens rights in an open-ended global war on terror.
