Ron Paul States The Facts On CNN

Ron Paul was on CNN’s Late Edition and was asked again if he believed the U.S. “invited the 9/11 attacks.” This has been going on since Ron Paul’s answer in the debate last week where he explained blowback to the audience. Ron Paul answered the CNN interview by saying it was not a belief, but just an evaluation of facts. What Ron Paul said at the debate was true, yet Rudy Giuliani, and many of the major news organizations think Giuliani made some kind of knock out punch. Some even compared it to the Reagan moment when he grabbed the mike and stated “I paid for this microphone.” Guiliani said during the debate, “That’s really an extraordinary statement. That’s an extraordinary statement, as someone who lived through the attack of September 11 that we invited the attack because we were attacking Iraq. I don’t think I’ve heard that before, and I’ve heard some pretty absurd explanations for September 11th.” So Giuliani has never heard of this idea? And the Fox debate moderators didn’t think to challenge Giuliani’s absurd claim? It is well documented that Osama bin Laden and his group of henchman said that the 9/11 attacks where prompted by U.S. policies in Iraq, and the Middle East. In his declaration of war in the 1990s bin Laden said it was U.S. troops on the sacred soil of Saudi Arabia, U.S. bombing and sanctions of a crushed Iraqi people, and U.S. support of Israel’s persecution of the Palestinians that were the reasons he and his mujahideen were declaring war on the U.S. It clearly states this in the 9/11 Commission Report. If we really want to fight a war on terror we should spend some time trying to understand the enemy. Maybe ask the question, “Why did they attack us?” We should also understand about how projecting military power around the world in our customary manner creates blowback. Giuliani’s answer was based solely on emotions, and totally lacking in facts. Does Giuliani follow the Bush line, and say they attacked us because they are evil and we are good? Or maybe the other Bush line, because they hate freedom. The country needs someone with the frankness of Ron Paul, but it seems, if the polls are corret, the country would prefer to have someone that is clueless like Giuliani. They are now even talking about not allowing Ron Paul in any future debates. I guess the Republicans don’t want him back telling the country how the party blundered us into this quagmire in Iraq.
