Rand Paul To White House: 'Call Off Syria Vote'

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) wants the White House to call off the congressional vote that would potentially authorize strikes against Syria. He told Neil Cavuto on Your World, "I guess my problem is today on the anniversary of 9/11, we ought to remember who attacked us -- Al Qaeda."

The senator said it's difficult to isolate which rebel groups are associated with Al Qaeda in Syria. Referencing the war in Afghanistan, he said, "[They] say I love America until you turn around and they shoot you in the back. [...] So when people line up in Syria and say please give me a stinger missile, [...] can we trust them?"
