"They want to stay in Afghanistan forever".

A disagreement on 9/11 over John Bolton and U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan descended into a full-on Twitter war between Rep. Liz Cheney and Senator Rand Paul, in a sequel to the beef between their fathers over invading Iraq.

The Paul-Cheney dispute comes on the heels of John Bolton's ouster from the Trump administration, which delighted Paul due to his opposition to the hawkishness of the now former national security adviser.

The sniping between the two sides began Wednesday when Mr. Paul tweeted an article critical of Ms. Cheney for opposing Mr. Trump on the war in Afghanistan.

Cheney then hit back with a pair of tweets, referencing the same debate and his failed presidential run, including: "Weird. I'm just grateful for a president who, unlike you, supports stopping these endless wars".

"I stand with @realDonaldTrump and our men and women in uniform who will never surrender to terrorists", Cheney said in her first post, "unlike @RandPaul, who seems to have forgotten that today is 9/11". "Really, they're part of this foreign policy swamp that has been trying to undermine President Trump".

In his CNN interview, Paul, 56, recalled how the Dick Cheney once attacked Vice President Mike Pence and was "going all in about the president's foreign policy".

"So the main aspects of President Trump's "America First" policy", Paul concluded, "the Cheneys are dead-set against it".
