U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) issued the following statement today regarding the ongoing questions surrounding the Obama Administration's use of drone strikes against U.S. citizens, as well as his opposition to John Brennan as the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA):
"Senator Paul is right: the Obama Administration should answer these very legitimate questions about the use of drones against American citizens. Two years ago as a member of the Intelligence Committee, I raised my concerns about the use of drones, and I applaud Senator Paul for highlighting this important issue on the floor yesterday. I still have very serious concerns about the Obama Administration's use of drones against U.S. citizens, and I will not support John Brennan's nomination for CIA Director."
