McCain Blasts Rand Paul’s Drone Filibuster: ‘We Shouldn’t Be Debating the Impossible Scenario’

Senator John McCain appeared on Friday’s Studio B and took Rand Paul to task for his 13-hour filibuster targeting the Obama administration’s policy on drones. “No one is going to be struck by a Hellfire missile from a drone that is not an enemy combatant. That’s just a fact,” McCain said.

The senator believes Congress should be focusing on more important issues, including the massacre in Syria and North Korea’s potential nuclear arms capability. “That’s what we should be discussing. That’s what we should be debating. Not the impossible scenario.”

While McCain stressed the need for more transparency and Congressional oversight on drone strikes, he said, “But to somehow translate that into dropping Hellfire missiles on people in cafes in the United States of America, that is not what we should be discussing.”
