WATCH: Rep. Franks Blasts Obama Drone "Hypocrisy": "More Than Subtle Difference Between Waterboarding and Blowing Someone Into Eternity!"

Arizona Rep. Trent Franks (R-CD8) dramatically blasted the Obama Administration's drone strikes policies yesterday during a House Judiciary Committee hearing.  In questioning a Bush Administration attorney, John B. Bellinger III, and law professor Stephen Vladeck, Franks noted that Obama and Democrats had "eviscerated" the Bush Administration over issues of torture, but was now fine with drone strikes against U.S. citizens who might be enemies in overseas battlefields.

"It seems to me that there's more than a subtle difference between waterboarding and blowing someone into eternity.  The hypocrisy of this Administration is profound in my opinion on this front."
