Rand Paul Defends Call for Bombing in Syria

On Thursday, The Daily Beast reported that at least one third of Syria had fallen into the hands of ISIS, even though the American military has pummeled the country with some 800 air strikes in an effort to weaken the terrorist organization.

Paul responded to the news in an interview with The Daily Beast on Friday in Las Vegas, saying that he did not regret his decision to support airstrikes in Syria, and despite evidence to the contrary, he believes the airstrikes have “lessened” ISIS’ ability to attack the U.S.

Asked if he regretted supporting air strikes in Syria, Paul responded, “no, I don’t. I support airstrikes in that I think there are vital american interests that can be and should be defended.”
