Margaret Hoover, Peter Beinart and Gloria Borger discuss Sen. Rand Paul's filibuster to stall a confirmation vote for President Obama's nominee for CIA Director, John Brennan. He began speaking at 11:47 a.m. on Wednesday and continued until 12:38 a.m. Thursday morning.
Paul used his time on the Senate floor to question the Obama Administration's use of drones against American citizens abroad, and the ability for the president to authorize a drone strike within the United States.
"This filibuster ... is all about getting attention," says Borger. "Because he knows he's not going to stop the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA."
The jurors were allowed to ask Jodi Arias their questions during the trial, and they covered a wide range of topics from the camera, the gun, the knife, her failed memory, and more. CNN's Randi Kaye reports.
A male African lion killed a woman volunteering as an intern at a California sanctuary on Wednesday. The lion, named Couscous, was shot and killed by a sheriff's deputy after the fatal attack that happened in his cage.
Wild animal expert Jeff Corwin, who held that lion as a cub, discusses the incident with Anderson Cooper. "These are powerful creatures and they possess incredible strength and predatory skills," he says.
The 4-year-old lion had been raised at the sanctuary since a young age. "These animals can spend a lifetime with little aggression and little examples of potential danger to humans beings, but when you weigh almost 400 pounds, you really only need to have one bad moment," says Corwin.

Mike Steenkamp still wakes up in the morning expecting a phone call from his niece. That call never comes.
"It hasn't really sunk in to my way of thinking," he said.
Steenkamp and his daughter Kim Martin told CNN's Drew Griffin this week that they aren't focusing on why Reeva Steenkamp is gone. She was shot and killed just three weeks ago by her boyfriend, Olympian and South African track star Oscar Pistorius.
They are trying to avoid the speculation and debate that swirl around whether Pistorius intentionally shot and killed his 29-year-old girlfriend or whether he mistook her for an intruder. He's been charged with premeditated murder.
