Rand Paul wants a formal declaration of war with ISIS. In a New York Times interview published Monday, the junior Kentucky senator criticized the president for taking action and knocked his own party for not taking issue, saying, "This is another example where [the president] doesn’t have much respect for Congress, and some conservatives don’t quite get that.”
President Obama announced wide-ranging airstrikes against ISIS militants in early September.
"America will lead a broad coalition to roll back this terrorist threat," President Obama said from the White House.
