If Elected, This Repub Promises To Do Something BIG To Americans Thinking Of Joining ISIS

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is expected to announce that he will join the already crowded Republican primary presidential field on June 1.

Graham, a defense hawk, aligns himself with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, and Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., who feel the United States needs to be more engaged in the Middle East to quell the rise of ISIS and support stability in the region.

Graham used the occasion of the Lincoln Day Dinner in Des Moines, Iowa, over the weekend to highlight just how aggressive he would be regarding Americans seeking to join ISIS.

As reported by the Washington Post, he said, “If I’m president of the United States and you’re thinking about joining al-Qaeda or ISIL [the Islamic State], I’m not gonna call a judge,” which was a reference to Sen. Rand Paul’s, R-K.Y., earlier remark about how the NSA should call a judge to obtain a warrant before tapping into people’s phone records. “I’m gonna call a drone and we will kill you.”

 Paul famously conducted a filibuster blocking a vote on President Obama’s CIA Director nominee in March of 2013 in order to get a commitment from the president, in writing, that drones would not be used to strike Americans on U.S. soil.

As reported by Western Journalism, Paul started a filibuster on Wednesday regarding the re-authorization of the Patriot Act.

Graham recently told CNN that he believes the United States should deploy a total of 10,000 troops to Iraq to help restore peace and combat ISIS.

The senator did not specify where he would conduct his drone strikes if elected president.
