WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) questioned Secretary of State Antony Blinken during a U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the Biden Administration’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal and continued incompetence.
 
Dr. Paul: “The guy the Biden administration droned, was he an aid worker or an ISIS-K operative?”
 
Sec. Blinken: “I don’t know because we’re reviewing it.”
 
Dr. Paul: “You’d think you’d kind of know before you off somebody with a predator drone.”

Dr. Paul has continually advocated for an end to the Afghan war, but never did anyone conceive of such colossal incompetence. He will continue to hold the Biden Administration accountable and responsible for the botched exit from Afghanistan that left all of our weaponry to the Taliban, and worst of all cost 13 of our brave young men and women their lives.
