    I suppose this would be a good time to point out that ad hominem attacks are proof positive that the person using them has lost the debate and has nothing of value to add.

    But the isolationist platform is not only naive, it's dangerous.
    Those scared of their own shadow need a new line, this one has last it’s power over the people.

    We live in a world where skyscrapers are blown up, passenger jets are blown to bits, and people are kidnapped on vacations. This all going on not in spite of our sphere of influence around the world, but in many cases because of it. The world is dangerous, stop being such a scaredy cat.

    The truth is, and those in the military are never going to accept it, but Edward Snowden has done more to secure my rights then the military has in the last 50 years.

    The article was edited on June 23 to "accurately portray Sen. Paul's remarks," and this thread was started on June 22. Since the statement at the beginning of the thread is different than the one made in the updated article, that is the claim that everyone's been responding to.

    In any case, that updated statement is still wrong. Almost every major rebel faction - including the ones we support - has been fighting ISIS, so we have not been arming their allies.

    somehow the arms we provided in syria have helped the terrorists in Iraq.

    Rand Paul correctly points this out. kudos Rand Paul for cutting through the obfuscations and outright lies.

    By making a statement which is factually untrue? "Our arms have unintentionally ended up in their hands" =/= "we have armed them or their allies"

    It often takes decades before we release the truth. intentional, or unintentional, our actions have done precisely what he said they had done. Arms given to rebels have aided terrorists.

    Because it was painfully obvious that you had no idea what you were talking about. As MadLib pointed out to you: ISIL is ISIS.

    ‘The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,’ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

    Do you read what you post?

    ....She blamed the Obama administration for tacitly approving the diversion of half of a $1 billion Qatari arms shipment to al-Qaeda-linked militants.

    'Remember, these weapons that came into Benghazi were permitted to enter by our armed forces who were blockading the approaches from air and sea,' Lopez claimed. 'They were permitted to come in. ... [They] knew these weapons were coming in, and that was allowed...
    So, basically, we didn't attack Qatar, and you are trying to spin that as us supporting Al Qaeda. Well done.

    coming from the guy who didn't even know that ISIS and ISIL were the same organization.

    reading back through the thread, I've done more to break out ISIL and the personalities involved than anyone else.

    For example, when I pointed out the example of Maqdisi critiquing the declaration of the caliphate. Quick, without google, can you even begin to describe that?
