Sen. Rand Paul Calls Out Republicans and Democrats on Drone Strikes

Senator Rand Paul took on Democrats and Republicans during his Tea Party response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address. Today, he joined Fox News Sunday to tackle questions on everything from drone strikes to a 2016 run for president.

When it comes to sequestration, Paul differs from Republicans. He says it's really a reduction in the rate of growth of spending, not a cut in spending.

The Kentucky senator also wants answers from the president on whether it's illegal to kill Americans on U.S. soil

in drone strikes. He clarified his stance on the U.S. drone strikes of Americans overseas. “If you’re sitting in a cafe in Paris or Yemen, there probably should be some process where a judge decides your guilt.”

Will Paul run for president in 2016? He told Chris Wallace that he won't make that decision until 2014, but said, “I would absolutely not run unless it were to win.”
