Courts should decide whether the U.S. should use drone attacks on American citizens who are abroad and accused of committing crimes against the nation, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul said.

CIA Director, and retired four-star general, David Petraeus returns to  101st Airborne Division, the unit he led into Iraq in 2003.  His visit caps a week of celebration at the post, as the 101st commemorates its 70th anniversary.  Petraeus will also attend a retirement ceremony for Command Sergeant Major Marvin Hill, who served under Petraeus as the senior non-commissioned officer.  After leaving the division, Petraeus served as the commander of U.S.forces in Iraq, was the head of U.S. Central Command and then was tapped by President Barack Obama to lead U.S. forces in Afghanistan.
