Former Democratic Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey called out Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” for her “incompatible” positions in support of droning terrorists, but in opposition to using enhanced interrogation. 

“Well the other thing is, you’ve got guys out there right now running drones. Dianne Feinstein supports the use of drones,” he noted. “What happens if ten years from now, there is another investigation saying those guys violated international law as well?”

“I mean you’re basically saying, ‘I can’t interrogate Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, but I can put him out with his family and drop a drone on him.’ There seems to be something incompatible with those two positions.” (RELATED: Tantaros: Obama Admin ‘Want Us To Look Bad’ On Torture, ‘They’re Fools!’)
