Rand Paul Blasts Vote to Arm Syrian Rebels: “I’m Not For Arming Radical Jihadists in Syria” (Video)

Since July, the Obama-backed Free Syrian Army, Al Nusra Front, and ISIS have paired together in order to fight the Syrian Assad regime.

According to one Free Syrian Army commander, the combining of forces with ISIS was needed in order to achieve “the greater good.”

Since around that time ISIS has paraded around the Caliphate in their brand new Toyota Hilux trucks.
Paid for by US taxpayers.

The Hilux, a pickup truck Toyota has built since the late 1960s, isn’t available in the US, but it’s popular around the globe, including with insurgent groups such as the Taliban, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, and now ISIS.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) went on with Sean Hannity tonight to explain why he does not support arming radical Islamists in Syria.

I’m not for arming radical jihadists. I’m not for arming radical Islam. And, I think most of the weapons, I think, either intentionally or unintentionally, that have been given to the Syrian rebels have basically just gone on through to ISIS. If you give them to the moderate rebels, the so-called moderate rebels, that’s just a stopping point because ISIS takes them away. We don’t even know who the head of the Free Syrian Army is. There are three different people who say they are the head of the Free Syrian Army, and people in my party and people on the other side as well, the president, they want to arm people. And, I’m not comfortable those arms won’t be used against us or against Israel.”

Rand went on to explain why he thought what President Obama is doing is unconstitutional.
