The Foreign Policy blog is reporting that there is clear evidence the Air Force responded to Rand Pauls filibuster by trying to get rid of data previously published online. Silly, silly, people. Nothing on the internet ever really goes away. The blog writes,
Quietly and without much notice, the Air Force has reversed its policy of publishing statistics on drone strikes in Afghanistan as the debate about drone warfare hits a fever pitch in Washington. In addition, it has erased previously published drone strike statistics from its website.

Let's get serious, here. Does anybody really think the "Air Force" made this decision?
The "Air Force" doesn't make decisions of this magnitude....the White House does and the Air Force executes.
If they didn’t think they were doing wrong they wouldn’t try to cover it up.
Nope, but he damn sure scared obama. Of course, I do not know why obama would be scared as he does as he damn well pleases and no one in a position or authority opposes him. And no matter what he does the propganda ministry ,a/k/a the main stream media will cover for him. In fact, he could take out a ad in every newspaper in the nation stating he was ordering the execution of whomever he pleased and not one eyebrow would be raised in protest. Johm Mc Cain would shout hoorah. Lindsey Graham would not say anything bevcause he would be on his knees in front of obama with his mouth full.
“The Pentagon told Air Force Times it had nothing to do with the change.”
Rand Paul scared the entire establishment. How dare he! He shook the tree and all the worm-filled fruits fell out.
A more accurate title would be:
Did Rand Paul Scare obama into Forcing the Air Force into Erasing Drone Strike Data?
