This week, I am introducing legislation to end a war that should have ended long ago, the war in Afghanistan. The United States has been fighting the War on Terror since October of 2001 and it has cost 6 trillion dollars. pic.twitter.com/UBxeq0NsQe

Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul introduced a bill Tuesday to end U.S. involvement in Afghanistan.
The libertarian-leaning senator introduced the “AFGHAN Service Act,” to end conflict that has been taking place since October 2001, a month following the September 11 attacks. Paul has been a long-time skeptic of American intervention, and a staunch critic of U.S. efforts in the region.
Paul made the announcement in a video released on his Twitter page:
“This week I’m introducing legislation to end a war that should’ve ended long ago,” Paul said in his announcement. “It’s important to know when to declare victory and leave a war.”
