Rand Forces Backtrack on Drones in US by Obama Administration

Rand Paul responds:

"This is a major victory for American civil liberties and ensures the protection of our basic Constitutional rights. We have Separation of Powers to protect our rights. That's what government was organized to do and that's what the Constitution was put in place to do... I would like to congratulate my fellow colleagues in both the House and Senate and thank them for joining me in protecting the rights of due process."

But do you believe the White House and Eric Holder if it took a 13 hour filibuster by Senator Rand Paul to even get this basic backtrack?
