Washington Post write About Rand Paul, and accurately describes Ron Pauls' foreign policy

"Rand Paul seeks Distance from Ron Paul's Foreign Policy...In tone at least". This article actually makes an effort to let the reader know that Ron Paul was NOT an isolationist, rather he was more of a non-interventionist. It's refreshing to see accurate portrayal of Ron Paul's ideas, regardless of how you feel about Rand.

"While many people think of Ron Paul as an isolationist, it’s important to note that he identified more as a non-interventionalist — i.e. getting involved only in limited circumstances in which American interests were clearly at stake. For example, even as he was a vocal critic of the war in Iraq, he initially voted the authorize the use of force in Afghanistan."
