Yay for Rand Paul…

…words I never thought I’d write. But doomed though the junior senator from Kentucky’s amendment may be, the gesture is admirable.

From The Hill:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is holding up a vote on the Defense Authorization Act until he gets a vote on his amendment affirming the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution and the indefinite detention of Americans…

Paul’s amendment would give American citizens being held by the military rights to a fair trial with a jury of peers and the right to confront the witnesses against him or her.
