Video: Rand Paul pans foreign aid in speech to VFW

WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 19: U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) talks with reporters as Senate Republicans and Democrats head to their weekly policy luncheon on March 19, 2013 in Washington, DC.

In remarks at the national VFW National Convention this morning, Sen. Rand Paul reiterated his non-interventionist foreign policy and called on the U.S. government to end foreign aid for "nations that burn our flag."
