The straight background from Aaron Blake, at WaPo, "John Brennan confirmed as CIA director, but filibuster brings scrutiny of drone program."
But check this on the bizarre ideological alliances from Adam Serwer, at Mother Jones, "John Yoo to Rand Paul: Leave Barack Obama Alone on Targeted Killing!" Well, as I noted yesterday, U.S. citizens on U.S. soil who have not been declared enemy combatants ain't gonna to cut it. (Actually, any U.S. citizen who hasn't been declared an enemy combatant won't cut it.) Otherwise, bombs away!
