‘I don’t want them watching us everywhere we are’
May 27, 2013
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told radio host Aaron Klein that the Obama administration may have made promises about drones over U.S. soil, but “there still exists a question” on exactly how the White House does plan to use the unmanned, armed vehicles.
“There is a difference between being in combat and not being in combat,” Paul told Klein. “For example, if you’re an American and you’re in Afghanistan and you’re fighting with the Taliban and you’re shooting at us, there’s not going to be any due process in that situation. … You fire back.
“The question is: What happens when you’re not involved in combat, but you’re thought to be conspiring to attack the United States?”
Paul was speaking Sunday on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC Radio.
