Actor John Cusack describes himself as a progressive, but he has been a critic of the federal government's drone program regardless of who has been is in office. Frankly, he has also be a pretty harsh critic of President Barack Obama as well.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and other GOP senators on Wednesday conducted an old-school filibuster on the Senate floor to block John Brennan's nomination and bring attention to the potential for drone strikes on U.S. soil. As the hours went by, Cusack was curious to know: "where are Democrats?"
Cusack had one tweet that was longer than 140 characters, but here's what he wrote:
AG say its ok to kill us citizens–and other bad guys- but trust us we’re the good guys..
how’d that play out through history mr holder…
pay no attention to the man behind that curtain
the great and powerful O has spoken…
