The ACLU Asks, “Will You ‘Stand With Rand’ at Tuesday’s Killing Program Hearing?”

Angela Keaton, April 19, 2013

ACLU Senior Legislative Counsel Chris Anders writes, “When Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) courageously held the Senate floor for 13 hours in an historic filibuster to put a spotlight on a vast killing program run out of the White House – which has left 4,700 people dead, including four American citizens – there was a groundswell of Americans saying that they would ‘Stand With Rand.’ If Paul was committed enough to filibuster, they were committed enough to stand with him.”

“On Tuesday, there will be another history-making moment. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who is a longtime champion of the Constitution and human rights, will be chairing the first-ever hearing in the Senate focused on drones and the killing program. Reaching across the aisle, Durbin invited Paul to be the first witness to testify at the hearing, and Paul said yes. It will be a time for all of us to Stand With Rand (and Dick) for this key hearing.”

The hearing is Tuesday, April 23 at 10am ET. Read the rest at the ACLU’s Blog of Rights.

  1. FYI: It has been postponed to 4 pm and is now in the Hart building.

  2. Rand can stand with all the Dick Durbins he wants. I see no real support for Rand.

    Is Rand going to talk about how great the Vietnam War was and all the "heroes" again like his last filibuster?

    Don't make me sick, please. Rand will get the narrowest support from a non-existent group.

    Its sad but he laid down with the worst, now where is he? Nowhere. Very sad. Not like his dad. More like that idiot Rubio.

  3. I always spent my half an hour to read this
