    Targeting drones
    A famous book on negotiation is called "Getting to Yes." Sometimes, though, the better achievement is arriving at "no." That's what Eric Holder and Rand Paul did the other day. It came in a letter from the attorney general to the Republican senator from...

    Are there no limits on the use of drones?
    A rare beast was spotted this week in Washington. An event as rare as the sighting of Big Foot. We actually saw a real filibuster in action. It was a welcome event, even if it was performed by crazy Sen. Rand Paul. For two reasons. One, because Paul...

    Rand Paul talks the talk

    Rand Paul's stunt misses the point
    If you took Sen. Rand Paul duck hunting, he'd probably shoot the decoy. That's the impression the first-term Kentucky Republican gave when he took the floor of the U.S. Senate on Wednesday for a 13-hour rambling real-life imitation of Jimmy Stewart's...
  • Obama's license to kill by drone

    Obama's license to kill by drone
    If you really want Washington's chattering classes to pay attention to something, an old saying goes, leak it to the media. Whoever leaked the Justice Department's 16-page confidential "white paper" memo on the use of armed drones to NBC News sparked...
