The Republican senator from Kentucky launched a talking filibuster against the CIA nominee's drone policy two weeks ago and mentioned Kent State University once in his 13-hour speech.
In an editorial posted by KentWired.com, the student-editors are basically saying, "Hey, keep us out of it."
Here's a portion of the editorial:
"... Paul referenced Kent State — and not in the best light. In trying to argue the lack of clarity over who could be targeted by drone strikes, Paul mentioned that college students at several campuses in the 1960s could have been considered enemies of the state. Paul questioned members of Congress, 'Are you going to just drop a drone hellfire missile on Jane Fonda? Are you going to drop a missile on Kent State?'
More than 40 years after the Ohio National Guard opened fire at Kent State, our university continues to be referenced with violence."
