Rand Paul On Syria Withdrawal: Lindsey Graham Has Been Wrong On Every Major Foreign Policy Issue This Century

|

Sen. Rand Paul slammed Sen. Lindsey Graham for trying to convince President Trump that U.S. troops should remain in northern Syria, saying Graham has "been wrong about almost every foreign policy decision of the last two decades."

"Lindsey Graham has been wrong about almost every foreign policy decision of the last two decades," Paul said Tuesday morning in an interview with MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle. "He was wrong about the Iraq War. The Iraq War was a mistake. It made Iran stronger, allowed more chaos, more instability, and more terrorism. He was wrong about the war in Libya. It lead to more chaos and more terrorism. He is wrong about this."





"He's been wrong about the Syrian war from the beginning," Paul explained. "Because the neo-cons, Lindsey Graham and others, and many liberals like Hillary Clinton, they all supported the Sunni extremists against Assad. I'm not so sure the Sunni extremists taking over Syria would have been better than Assad. I'm not a fan of Assad, but sometimes maybe you have two evils, and you really don't have to pick sides."

"That's why we're supposed to vote, have a big public debate and vote on a war. And I don't see a national interest over there. And the only way you determine if there is one is to have a big, spirited national debate, a vote in Congress to decide whether we're going to send our kids to war."
