Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.)  urged President Obama late Thursday against getting involved militarily in Syria, suggesting that it would be a "big mistake."

"There are potential repercussions," Paul said on Fox News Channel. "If he launches this little piddly attack with a few cruise missiles, it won't stop chemical weapons, but it may well insight a gas attack on Israelis. I think it's a big mistake.”
