This short audiobook examines Rand Paul's recent filibuster. On March 6, 2013, Senator Paul filibustered the nomination of John Brennan as CIA Director in an effort to draw public attention to the Obama administration's policies on drone warfare. Attorney General Holder had recently suggested that it is lawful to conduct drone strikes against US citizens on American soil. The public's positive reaction to the filibuster established Paul as a Republican whose libertarian ideals can appeal to voters on both sides of the aisle.
