After Rand Paul pulled an old-fashioned "talk till you drop" 13 hour filibuster on the Senate floor yesterday, effectively stalling the Brennan nomination, the White House capitulated and ordered Attorney General Holder to send a letter stating that the Administration does not believe that it has the authority to use drones to kill American citizens at home, unless, of course, they're involved in armed combat against the United States. They had that authority already, so that's no big deal from a civil liberties point of view. Next step: outlawing the use of drones for surveillance nationwide.
