One of the only sane voices chiming in on the announcement that The Pentagon will train 5,000 Syrian rebels per year as part of Obama’s new campaign to battle Islamic State militants, is that of Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who doubled down on his assertion that arming rebels is akin to placing weapons into the hands of ISIS.

“It’s a mistake to arm them. Most of the arms we’ve given to the so-called moderate rebels have wound up in the hands of ISIS, because ISIS simply takes it from them, or it’s given to them, or we mistakenly actually give it to some of the radicals,” Paul said on CBS’s “This Morning.”
