Rand Paul: Destroy ISIS, But I Would Have Voted Against Iraq War

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he would have voted against the Iraq War, but believes the US has to destroy ISIS to prevent them from threatening US interests on Friday’s “Real Time” on HBO.

“I’m not for sending any troops into Iraq and I will oppose sending any of our people back into Iraq.  It was a mess from the beginning, I would have voted against the Iraq War, we wasted a trillion dollars and thousands of lives” he declared.

Paul then argued why ISIS was different and needed to be confronted militarily, stating “why I’ve decided now we have to do something, is I think that ISIS is now a threat to our embassy, and to our consulate, and I think we do need to defend American interests and there are lines that occasionally have to be drawn.”
