Paul Calls for Formal End to Iraq War

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Bowling Green, is calling for a formal end to U.S. involvement in the war in Iraq. Last week, Paul introduced an amendment to the Department of Defense authorization bill to formally end the war in Iraq. At an appearance in Bowling Green on Friday, Paul said he hopes the Senate votes on the amendment shortly after Thanksgiving. He said he’s already received some bipartisan support on the amendment.
