Scott Walker Rips Rand Paul for Blaming ISIS on GOP ‘Hawks’

Rand Paul’s fellow Republicans continue to criticize him for saying GOP “hawks” in Congress are responsible for the Islamic State militant group, The Hill reported.

The Kentucky senator, who is running for president, declared recently on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that “ISIS exists and grew stronger because of the hawks in our party who gave arms indiscriminately, and most of those arms were snatched up by ISIS.”

“I just respectfully disagree with Senator Paul,” said another likely presidential candidate, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, on the Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto” show. “I believe the reason that we’re facing troubles, and not only in that region of the world, is because of the lack of American leadership. And that certainly doesn’t mean looking around for who to blame but rather to say how do we have solutions. … I just think he’s wrong on that.”

Walker told program host Neil Cavuto: “When you see it not just in Syria, not just on Iraq; you see it with our going down the path towards a supposed agreement with Iran, you see it with Putin creeping into the Ukraine, you see it with islands of sand being built in the South China Sea.”

Walker has indicated he will announce his candidacy for president sometime this summer.
