Presidential candidate Rand Paul has urged voters to look to where ISIS is getting it’s weapons from to understand the monumental problem the US is facilitating in Syria and beyond.
Speaking with Ed Berliner of Newsmax, paul stated “Most of these people do not have the sophistication to make arms so they get the arms from other folks.”
“Right now ISIS has a billion dollars’ worth of U.S. Humvees, they have a billion dollars in cash they stole from us and they pay their soldiers with but they have anti-tank weapons and missiles they fire from the shoulder that were basically given to people in the Syrian civil war and taken by ISIS.”
“So really if we don’t want weapons to get into the hands of folks, we should be very careful about who we give the weapons to,” the Senator stated.
Paul then elaborated by noting that during the Libyan civil war, 15,000 shoulder-to-air missiles made by the United States went missing.
“That’s why there is a concern that airliners might be taken down by shoulder-to-air missiles.” Paul noted.
“That might be a good reason for why we should’ve thought long and hard before we agreed with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to get involved in a war in Libya,” the Libertarian leaning candidate said.
Paul also noted that the CIA played a major role in arming rebels with shoulder-fired missiles.
