In recent days the Weekly Standard and Washington Free Beacon have brought to light a now-scrubbed recommended reading list for students that had resided on Sen. Rand Pauls website. Why the focus on a book list, and why was the book list scrubbed?
The answer to the second question could lie in the answer to the first: the foreign policy recommendations in the reading list take a variety of controversial stances, suggesting that the U.S. is to blame for the rise of Islamic supremacism in the Middle East, that the Israeli Lobby controls U.S. foreign policy to Americas great detriment, and other potentially toxic assertions consistent with views of many on the progressive left and even Al Qaedas rhetoric itself.

To save us having to go to Beck’s web site, what is the list?
The foreign policy titles on on the recommended reading list consist of: Ron Pauls A Foreign Policy of Freedom, From the site:
Andrew J. Bacevichs The New American Militarism: How Americans Are Seduced by War, Chalmers Johnsons Blowback: The Costs and Consequences of American Empire, Michael Scheuers Imperial Hubris: Why the West Is Losing the War on Terror and Patrick J. Buchanans Where the Right Went Wrong: How Neoconservatives Subverted the Reagan Revolution and Hijacked the Bush Presidency.
Thanks, I get tired of the constant Blaze teasers and link.
Like father like son.
Same here. And it was underlined by the site almost crashing my woefully poor browser. And sorry about my tagging it as from there accidentally in the actual text I was pasting.
is this article about libertarian infighting??
I had some hopes for Rand, but he turns out this way...
on to other possible candidates!
(we must win in 2016!)
Rand Paul hates neo-conservatives, no news there.
