Rand Paul: Dick, Liz Cheney ‘Wrong About Every Foreign Policy Decision’ — They ‘Ought to Be Quiet’

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) addressed criticism from Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) over his opposition to CIA director nominee Gina Haspel.

Paul said, “You know, juvenile, but I think the Cheneys, both father, and daughter, could spend a lifetime trying to justify the thousands of soldiers, thousands of Iraqis who died in the Iraq war, which was an unnecessary war, made the Middle East less stable, emboldened Iran, and really have been wrong about every foreign policy decision over the last four years.”

He added, ‘So I think when they’re done explaining why people had to die in Iraq, why people had to be maimed in Iraq and why it really made the situation worse, the Cheneys can stand up and try to make other points about foreign policy, but until they prove they knew anything about the world, I think probably they ought to be quiet.”
