Founders Of Student Scholars For 9/11 Truth React To Fox News’ Ron Paul Smear Campaign

PRESS RELEASE: FOUNDERS OF STUDENT SCHOLARS FOR 9/11 TRUTH REACT TO FOX NEWS’ RON PAUL SMEAR CAMPAIGN

“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. (Applause, cheers.)"

That is how former New York Mayor, and GOP Presidential Candidate, Rudolph Giuliani responded to GOP Presidential Candidate Rep. Ron Paul’s opinion that we were not attacked on 9/11 because Islamic Fascists “hate our freedoms,” but rather, because of blowback from irresponsible U.S. foreign policy that has had America interfering in the affairs of middle eastern nations for years.

To most, Paul’s position would not be considered out of line. Anyone who has any semblance of understanding of the history of U.S. covert operations knows that the assertion that the U.S. has been interfering with Middle Eastern politics is true. Ever since the end of World War II, the United States has insisted upon being involved in the region’s affairs in order to remain friendly with oil rich nations and keep those nations from falling into the hands of individuals that won’t comply with western countries. In order to keep things that way, America has engaged in some unscrupulous behavior that has stirred hostility in the region. Ron Paul is merely expressing an understanding of that hostility, not excusing it. The neo-conservative candidates and their lapdogs are insisting that that the historical record is not important because they have “declared war on the west.” This mindset is ignorant and mind-blowing.
