“The Lack of Opposition to Obama’s Kill List Policy Is a National Disgrace”

From Washington's Blog:
  
Democrats Shamefully Silent on Obama Administration’s Assertion of Right to Assassinate Americans on U.S. Soil

Rand Paul carried out a historic 13-hour filibuster of dronemaster-in-chief John Brennan’s nomination for CIA chief.
One of the top constitutional law experts in the country – Jonathan Turley, a progressive liberal – writes:
What was most striking about this principled stand is the virtual total absence of Democrats in speaking out against Obama. Just this week, Attorney General Eric Holder admitted that this policy could include killing citizens on U.S. soil with drones. Yet, the Democrats worked to stop not the kill list policy but Paul’s filibuster. Obama apologists have attacked Rand for some of his other positions to avoid dealing with the fact that Obama is claiming the powers of an Imperial President. I do not agree with Paul on many things, but I commend him for this stand and condemn those who remained silent, again, in the face of this authoritarian policy of Obama... More here.

Vampy, I think what you're seeing is the delay between posting and moderation. I used to just have no barriers or delay to posting at all, but then I got a spam attack from some wingnuts, and since then I had to add the moderation, which means I have to review comments before they posts.
I hate that, and I know it's inconvenient, but it seems to be the only way to foil attacks by spammers.
