(CNN) – In an interview on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront," Sen. Rand Paul responded Thursday to criticism from his fellow Republican Senate colleagues, John McCain and Lindsey Graham, about his filibuster.
"These are the same two senators that argued in favor of indefinite detention," Paul said. "Which means, and I asked sen McCain directly, I said does this mean you take an American citizen without a trial and send them to Guantanamo Bay for the rest of their life without ever charging them? And he said yes, if they are a safety risk. Who gets to decide? Senator McCain? Does he get to decide if you are an enemy combatant?"
