OKLAHOMA CITY,Oklahoma: Republican Senator Jim Inhofe issued a statement supporting Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster during John Brennan’s confirmation hearing.[1] Inhofe said, “I strongly oppose the use of armed drones on innocent Americans. This is an important debate which is a result of the President’s nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Whether through filibuster or blocking nominees, I will do whatever it takes to force this White House to be more transparent and held accountable. As a member of the Intelligence Committee, I look forward to working with my colleagues to protect the Constitutional rights of all Americans.”[1]
