Rand Paul Supports Having Some Military Bases Abroad

Another difference between the Kentucky senator and his father


brief item on Rand Paul by Time's Alex Altman describes the Republican Kentucky senator speaking recently to a group of Republican women in his home state and catching himself when he brings up the idea of shutting down U.S. military bases on foreign soil.

"I'm not saying don't have any," he said. "I'm just saying maybe not 900. I mean, I'd rather have one at Fort Campbell and Fort Knox than one in Timbuktu."
