Rand Paul did NOT say :
"preemptive war with Iran should be on the table"
THAT IS A BLATANT LIE
The discussion begins at 5:30 in the attached clip.
Context begins at 6:20
Quote at 6:35. "I think all options are on the table."
Naturally, even that quote alone must be taken in the context in which it was said.
But I want to be crystal clear about this. This Op thread is a BLATANT LIE HIT PIECE against Rand Paul. Rand Paul did NOT say what the Op said in its (original) title as quoted (cut and paste) above here by me in my reply.
Additionally, there was no question about preemptive strikes or war and those words are fully ABSENT from the entire interview.
