WASHINGTON, April 8 (UPI) -- A video has emerged of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., accusing former Vice President Dick Cheney of pushing for the Iraq war to benefit his former employer Halliburton. Cheney recently slammed the "isolationists" within the Republican party, whom he said concerned him greatly in the 2016 presidential election, and thereby pointed the finger at presidential hopeful Paul. Now a video from 2009 has emerged, in which Paul expressed some hefty accusations toward Cheney. In the video, Paul claimed Cheney exploited the 9/11 terrorist attacks to go to war in Iraq in order to benefit the giant military contractor Halliburton, of which Cheney was formerly CEO.
