Explanations of the hints: Facebook will win the war: our military doesn't need the NSA to monitor the social media posts of terrorists who are dumb enough to post photos of themselves bragging about their locations; Rand Paul's victory: Senator Paul led the fight against the PATRIOT Act; that's practically a rounding error: yes, just 5% of the attempts to smuggle dangerous things was detected; and he only served it to guests: the Nazi leader himself wasn't a drinker, but he nonetheless had a hoard of the good stuff.
