The NSA and the DHS are not part of the military.

It would be political suicide to use a drone for anything like this unless you were sure beyond a reasonable doubt that the person being monitored was on their way to perform an attack and there was a chance conventional law enforcement would not be able to stop them. Again, chances are remote but there is a chance, so I think this was just CYA.

I would bet all I own that if Bush or Romney were president, your answers would be the exact opposite. Enable on.

Rand is not talking about an immediate threat, but of an imminent threat.

What Obama wants is to use drone strikes on NON combative US citizens on US soil without a trial, this shouldn't even be up for debate...

No matter what this is an unacceptable method of operation due to it's abusive potential.

it's been unacceptable from the start; this is only the next logical step in the war on terror. this is what those millions of hippies were protesting about ~10 years ago

They've protested it throughout history. They just haven't always been "hippies."

You put words into my mouth by your quote. If that was not your intent I apologize.
