On Sean Hannity’s show, Hannity tried one more time to get Sen. Rand Paul to blame President Barack Obama on the failed policies in Iraq.
But Paul didn’t fall for Hannity’s partisan rhetoric and Dick Cheney talking points.
Paul told Hannity that Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki deserved a lot of the blame. “We shouldn’t always say that it is just our fault, or any one person’s fault over here. For example, the person most culpable in all of this is Maliki. He he kicked the Sunnis out of his army … so really Maliki deserves a lot of blame,” Paul said.
On of the most striking comments that Paul said – a comment that Americans do not hear enough from a sitting U.S. Senator – is the truth regarding the funding of Islamic terrorists.
Paul told Hannity, “One of the reason’s they’re (ISIS – Islamic terrorists) stronger is that we have been allied with them in Syria. We’ve been funding Islamic rebels who kill Christians. We’d be funding Islamic rebels to fight against Iranian proxies in Syria, but now, on the other side of the world, we’d be siding with the Iranian Guard. If we actually put troops in there we’d be siding with the Iranian Guard.”
Paul added, “If the Shi’ites won’t fight for Mosul, I’m not willing to send my son and I feel strongly about that.”
