Jennifer Rubin – a notorious Rand Paul hater – at The Washington Post released this controversial video this weekend that will definitely damage the Paul brand. It was Rubin’s first assault on the Paul campaign.
In 2012, Paul was speaking about sanctions on Iran. During his speech Rand, as reported by The Right Scoop, disparaged the notion of use of force, and for some reason claimed the United States was partly to blame for World War II!
“There are times when sanctions have made it worse. I mean, there are times .. leading up to World War II we cut off trade with Japan. That probably caused Japan to react angrily. We also had a blockade on Germany after World War I, which may have encouraged them … some of their anger.”

Paul voted in favor of the sanctions against Iran.
This video will damage Paul and frighten those who are concerned that Rand’s foreign policy is too close to that of his father.
