Remember when Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) stood up on the Senate floor for nearly 13 hours in an ideological protest of the Obama administration's hypothetical authority to use drone technology to kill U.S. citizens on American soil? Well, now he's saying killing a certain U.S. citizen on some specific American soil in Watertown, Massachusetts last Friday may not have been the worst thing in the world.

During an interview with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business Network Monday night, Paul attempted to make a distinction between the American "sitting in a café" example he has often cited and the "imminent threat" faced by Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Friday night. "I've never argued against any technology being used when you have an imminent threat, an active crime going on," Paul said. Though his next example offered up a disturbingly low bar for the predator drone option. "If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and fifty dollars in cash," he said, "I don't care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him."
