Rand Paul published on his website http://www.paul.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=779 his statement in response of video shown below.


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. Rand Paul released the following statement this evening following erroneous reports of a change in his position on the use of domestic drones.

“My comments last night left the mistaken impression that my position on drones had changed.

“Let me be clear: it has not. Armed drones should not be used in normal crime situations. They only may only be considered in extraordinary, lethal situations where there is an ongoing, imminent threat. I described that scenario previously during my Senate filibuster.

“Additionally, surveillance drones should only be used with warrants and specific targets.

“Fighting terrorism and capturing terrorists must be done while preserving our constitutional protections. This was demonstrated last week in Boston. As we all seek to prevent future tragedies, we must continue to bear this in mind.”
