Trending: WATCH: Warren Blatantly Lies About Parents Eloping Because Mom Was Indian

Here’s the scoop…

From Daily Wire:

In February 2003, appearing on a radio show hosted by a local libertarian activist the day before an anti-war event that was protesting U.S. involvement in Afghanistan, Krysten Sinema, who is running in 2018 as the Democratic Party’s candidate for the Arizona Senate, told the host, Ernest Hancock, that she didn’t care if Americans wanted to fight for the Taliban.

The exchange started with Hancock asking Sinema if she would oppose him joining the Taliban, saying, “Now you would say, maybe we do owe something to the world, as long as it’s nice and sweet and peaceful and what you want to do.”

Sinema responded, “Well, it’s not so much a candy cane kind of theory as you’re making it stand out. But I do think that those of us who are privileged to have more do owe something to others.”

More from Fox News:

In the same interview, Sinema said the U.S. military went into the Middle East for “a number of reasons,” including “oil, power, control” of the region.

“There’s also, what I think is rather convenient, which is the switch and bait theory, which is, don’t pay attention to the falling economy, don’t pay attention to the tax cuts for wealthy, let’s pay attention to this horrible imminent threat,” she added.

Continued:

Just two months after the interview and a month after the start of the Iraq War, she told the Arizona Republic that “we should feel compassion” for enemy combatants killed in the country.

The Sinema campaign did not respond to Fox News’ multiple requests for a comment.

Fox News can also disclose that, in 2005, she befriended a conspiracy theorist who believes 9/11 was perpetrated by the U.S. government.
