    Frank gives Obama high marks on gay issues, rips marriage stanceBy Mike Lillis - 04/27/12 05:50 PM ET Rep.

Asked his policy on U.S. troops fighting in Iraq, the Texas congressman, now serving his 10th term, replies: "I would get them home as soon as possible." And U.S. troops in Europe? "I would get them home," Paul said in an interview Tuesday. "Having them stationed abroad doesn't serve our national interest, and that goes for forces in Japan and Korea.
