Ron Paul: U.S. Triggered Sept. 11


ron-paul2Ron Paul posted a message on Facebook today calling the September 11 terrorist attacks “blowback for decades of US intervention in the Middle East.”

“We’re supposed to believe that the perpetrators of 9/11 hated us for our freedom and goodness,” Paul wrote on the 12th anniversary of the attacks. “In fact, that crime was blowback for decades of US intervention in the Middle East. And the last thing we needed was the government’s response: more wars, a stepped-up police and surveillance state, and drones.”

Attached to the post was a picture of an American flag at half mast with the words “Never Forget. September 11, 2001.” The post had more than 21,000 “likes” several hours after it went up.

Paul is well known for his libertarian ideology and opposition to U.S. military action abroad. He said last week that it would be “historic” if Congress voted against President Obama’s plan for military strikes in Syria. His son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, has been one of the most vocal opponents to U.S. action in Syria following the regime’s alleged use of chemical weapons.

  1. Why was a helicopter rescue not attempted while the north tower burnt for an entire hour with hundreds inside ?!

    They could have used construction cranes, or the police helicopters which were by the scene?!

  2. nnn, of coarse you are right. Its all the US fault, they wanted 3000 innocents to die and deliberately stood idly by.oh yes, and the hundreds of firefighters that perished was all a hoax.

  3. Hmmm. nnn, how about:
    High heat causing unstable air currents? Poor visibility due to smoke?
    Inability to coordinate units to prevent possible crashes?
    So easy to be a Monday – Morning Quarterback – especially twelve years later.

  4. Well, Ron Paul is right on the money, except that he has no future in the world of the innocent. So if he thinks that America is responsible for the WTC and other disasters on 9/11, I think he is responsible for the future that he has decried foul when the real missiles from the world of hate fall upon the heads of the living in the true world of True diplomacy and human dignity. And he can not run and hide.
