Rand Paul Lights Up Lindsey Graham
Article from Reason by Ed Krayewski.

You know you are in too many wars in too many places when even warmonger Lindsay Graham can’t keep track anymore
— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) October 23, 2017
His comment was in reaction to the senior senator from South Carolina’s stunning, but perhaps unsurprising, admission that Graham didn’t know the U.S. had more than 1,000 troops in Niger in the war on terror.
If only he were a Reason reader, he might!
Paul’s broadside is a substantive and stark reminder of how much the war on terror has transformed U.S. military policy and how far the Republican party has drifted from the heady days of 2013, when a veritable “civil war” seemed about to break out over non-interventionism’s place in conservative philosophy.
