Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) questioned U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken over drone bombs that reportedly missed ISIS-K terrorists and killed an aid worker and civilians in Afghanistan.
“So you don’t know if it was an aid worker or an ISIS-K operative?” Paul asked Blinken.
“I can’t speak to that and I can’t speak to that in this setting, in any event,” Blinken said in response.
Paul pressed on, asking: “So you don’t know or won’t tell us?”
“Uh, I don’t know because we’re reviewing it,” Blinken stammered.
This is when Paul slammed the Biden regime hack with an obvious truth that illustrates the folly and tragedy of American foreign policy.
“Well, see, you’d think you’d kind of know before you off somebody with a Predator drone whether he’s an aid worker or he’s an ISIS-K,” Paul said.
Paul then brought up a point made frequently by his father, iconic former Texas Congressman Ron Paul of Texas, about how these sort of drone killings of innocents promote more terrorism against America.
“I don’t know if it’s true, but I see these pictures of these beautiful children that were killed in the attack,” Paul said regarding reports of seven kids and three others who were obliterated via predator drone.
“If that’s true, and not propaganda, guess what, maybe you’ve created hundreds or thousands of new potential terrorists from bombing the wrong people,” he added.

Liberty Conservative News has reported on how Biden was instilled in the White House because he is the consummate empire politician who will carry water for the military-industrial complex:
“A new documentary released by The Intercept highlights the record of President-imposed Joe Biden, calling him the consummate “empire politician.”
The documentary takes Biden from his early opposition to the Vietnam War, which he betrayed to later become a globalist warmonger. Researcher Jeremy Scahill noted that Biden jettisoned his morals and became a full-blown swamp creature in the 1980s.
In the 1980s, Biden supported military incursions in Grenada, Libya and Panama. The turning point into belligerent hawkishness seemed to come in 1991 when Biden said he was “proven to be wrong” in his opposition to the Gulf War. From this point on, Biden supported basically every foreign military intervention pushed by Democrats and/or Republicans.
Biden supported former president Bill Clinton’s crippling economic sanctions on Iraq in the 1990s and a bombing campaign that Scahill describes as the “longest sustained U.S. bombing campaign since Vietnam.” He also supported Clinton’s military interventions into Bosnia, his bombings in Sudan and Afghanistan, NATO’s bombing of Serbia and Montenegro, and clandestine operations in Colombia.
When the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks happened, Biden kicked his pro-militarism stance into an even higher gear. He took credit for many of the worst provisions of the Patriot Act and authorized torture at Guantanamo Bay. He also supported the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a potential coup in Venezuela, and the wholesale killing of innocents in Gaza.”
Paul is doing yeoman’s work calling out federal war criminals who need to face justice before America can ever be great again.
