Sen. Rand Paul on Syria vote: "What comes after limited strikes?"

The Obama Administration is in the midst of a full-court press to try and garner support for striking Syria in response to the chemical weapons attack that occurred last month.

The President has picked up the support of key Congressional leaders, and today his senior officials made the case for action before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

How did it go? OutFront tonight is Senator Rand Paul, who sits on the committee and had a number of exchanges with Secretary of State John Kerry.

    For me Polotics should not enter into the arena of making a decision of such magnitude. I watched the debate yesterday. The Senators were not educated on the issue. Only a handfull knew about the U.N. Charter. After the debate ended for the day, CNN showed maps of Syria and plans based on educated sources on where we would attack. Including Air Bases, Army Installations etc.. Have we not been educated on the fact that CNN is seen around the world? This whole Syrian mess is as bad as my spelling. Politicians should take a vote. Yes or No. Then Shut Up.
