(Raw Story) On his show Wednesday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart applauded Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for using an “old-school filibuster” to highlight the legality of drone strikes on American citizens.

Paul began the filibuster on Wednesday morning after the Obama administration suggested it would not rule out the use of lethal military force against U.S. citizens on U.S. soil in extraordinary circumstances.

“So Senator Rand Paul, to draw a little attention to the issue of the execution of executive executions, executed the old-school filibuster,” Stewart explained.
