Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says Hillary Clinton’s actions while secretary of State contributed to the current migrant crisis in the Middle East.
“And I think, frankly, that Hillary Clinton bears some responsibility for the crisis,” Paul said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday.
The dovish senator said Clinton’s policy of providing arms to Syrian rebels in the ongoing civil war only enflamed the situation.
“They say, ‘Oh, we’re going to give them to good people,’ but it really wasn’t possible I think to find the good people and so many of the people were al Qaeda, al Nusra and some of these people became ISIS,” Paul said. “So it was really a bad idea and continues to be a bad idea to arm the allies of ISIS, to arm the allies of al Qaeda.”
