Rand Paul sides with ACLU?

When Alabama's Republican Senator Jeff Sessions proposed an amendment to a just-passed bill that would give the President the authority to continue jailing a terrorist suspect found not guilty by a court, Kentucky's Tea Party darling Rand Paul showed his libertarian streak. 

“There is one thing and one thing only protecting innocent Americans from being detained at will at the hands of a too-powerful state – our Constitution, and the checks we put on government power.”

That is precisely the ACLU's position.
