Rand Paul: 'Nobody's Got A Damn Car In Afghanistan'

Yesterday, Rand Paul appeared on “The Simon Conway Show” to rail against left-wing environmentalism that he says “has infected the Pentagon” and driven up military expenditures.

One result of this “green craziness,” he said, was the construction of a natural gas fueling station in Afghanistan, even though, according to the Kentucky senator, “nobody’s got a damn car in Afghanistan.”

However, the money in question actually went towards a larger effort “to bring Afghanistan’s giant Shebergan gas field back into production,” and people in Afghanistan do in fact drive and own cars.

Paul then pivoted to attack his fellow presidential hopefuls Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz for their stances on military spending, which he said would “bankrupt the country.”
