Senator Rand Paul’s recent 13-hour filibuster drew attention to a number of important issues involving the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles abroad and at home. Among them: is it constitutional for the president to use UAVs to target American citizens abroad, far from any battlefield? What is the legal basis for President Obama’s ever-expanding drone wars abroad? Given the Department of Homeland Security’s support for domestic law-enforcement drones, what legal protections do Americans need to prevent liberty and privacy abuses at home?
