Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has joined fellow congresswoman Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) in calling on the U.S. government to stop funding terrorists. Dr. Paul, in a press release, announced the introduction of the Act known as the Stop Arming Terrorists Act (S. 532). The bill is meant to be a “companion bill” to Gabbard’s (HR 608) which also carries the same title. Paul, a Republican, and Gabbard, a Democrat, have symbolically joined hands in calling on the federal government to be more accountable with how and to whom it gives money and material support.
Gabbard recently came out against the Military Industrial Complex, in January after she visited Syria. As The Free Thought Project first reported, she pulled the veil off of the mainstream media’s narrative that Syria is the aggressor, and pointed the finger squarely at the U.S. as the country funding terrorism.
