Rand Paul Says: No Aid To Our Enemies

randpaulby Rand Paul

Last year, I warned that giving aid to the Syrian rebels could come back to haunt the United States and Israel, and that we shouldn’t do it.

Recently, the Washington Free Beacon reported:

One of the militant Syrian rebel groups provided access to advanced U.S. missiles said that it is seeking “the return of all Syrian land occupied by Israel,” a stance that could potentially complicate U.S. military support to the armed rebel group.

This is why I strenuously opposed the United States aid to these Syrian rebels. I warned the Senate Foreign Relations Committee of this on the day it voted overwhelmingly to arm this group. My exact warning: “This is an important moment. You will be funding, today, the allies of al-Qaeda.”

“It’s an irony you cannot overcome,” I added.

One year and one month later, the irony remains. Full story.
