Rand Paul seems to have more in common with his father regarding some foreign policy elements than I had originally thought, especially when it comes to discerning the motives of Al-Qaeda. What caught my attention, though, was when Hugh asked Paul directly if he felt that our support for Israel triggered some of these attacks and would he argue that we should reduce our support for Israel based on that premise. Paul simply replied that Al-Qaeda says that it’s part of their justification and that we should read their writings and doesn’t go so far as to answer the second half of that question. That’s a little bothersome to say the least.
The key part in this interview starts at the 13 minute mark and goes for about 6 minutes.
