Rand Paul Joins the Fight — Presents Bill to Demand US “Stop Arming Terrorists”- Free Thought Project
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has joined fellow congresswoman Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) in calling on the U.S. government to stop funding terrorists. Dr. Paul, in a press release, announced the introduction of the Act known as the Stop Arming Terrorists Act (S. 532). The bill is meant to be a “companion bill” to Gabbard’s (HR 608) which also carries the same title. Paul, a Republican, and Gabbard, a Democrat, have symbolically joined hands in calling on the federal government to be more accountable with how and to whom it gives money and material support.
Gabbard recently came out against the Military Industrial Complex, in January after she visited Syria. As The Free Thought Project first reported, she pulled the veil off of the mainstream media’s narrative that Syria is the aggressor, and pointed the finger squarely at the U.S. as the country funding terrorism.
Later, in a statement, she said, “For years, the U.S. government has been supporting armed militant groups working directly with and often under the command of terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government. Rather than spending trillions of dollars on regime change wars in the Middle East, we should be focused on defeating terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda, and using our resources to invest in rebuilding our communities here at home…The fact that American taxpayer dollars are being used to strengthen the very terrorist groups we should be focused on defeating should alarm every Member of Congress and every American. We call on our colleagues and the Administration to join us in passing this legislation.”
