Rand Paul Says: No Aid To Our Enemies
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.
