Ron Paul asked to reject 9/11 Truthers support

During the Fox News network Republican Presidential debate, Ron Paul was asked about the 9/11 Truthers.

Will you disassociate yourself from the 9/11 Truthers who say 9/11 was an inside job.

I don't believe that, Paul said. I'm not going to tell them what to say and what not to say. Paul then asked if he could participate in the same question that had been asked of the other candidates preceding him.

Paul just digs himself in deeper and deeper. Why not say, if he doesn't believe 9/11 was an inside job, that those who do, their money and support - is no good here.

This is like, if you don't support abortion, are you going to accept monies from those known to be abortionists? There is a principle here.

If he does believe 9/11 was an inside job, then say so, and stand strong with those of the 9/11 Truther crowd, who do.

(Net the Truth Online)

If he’s not a truther, why not condemn these people?

Allowing Ron Paul to explain himself

Ron Paul on 9/11 and Eric Dondero

Right after that Ron Paul interview session I followed Paul to ask about his encounter with 9/11 "Truth" campaigners and Eric Dondero's planned primary challenge.
Reason: What did you mean when you told the Scholars that "the [9/11] investigation is an investigation in which there were government cover-ups"?

Paul: I do think there were cover-ups, and I think it was mainly to cover up who was blamed, who's inept. See, they had the information. The FBI had an agent who was very much aware of the terrorists getting flight lessons but obviously not training to be pilots. He reported it 70 times or whatever and it was totally ignored. We were spending $40 billion a year on intelligence. It wasn't a lack of money or a lack of intelligence, it was a lack of the ability to put the intelligence together. Even the administration had been forewarned that something was coming, the CIA had been forewarned. So it was a cover up of who to blame. I see it more that way.

Reason: The position of the Student Scholars is that 9/11 was executed by the U.S. government. Do you agree or disagree with that?

Paul: I'd say there's no evidence of that.

Reason: So what did you mean when you told Student Scholars you'd be open to a new 9/11 investigation?

Paul: Well, I think the more we know about what we went on is good. But I don't think there's any evidence of [an inside job] and I don't believe that. The blame goes to bad policy. And a lot of times bad policy is well-motivated. The people who believe in a one world government are well motivated, but they disagree with me.

Ron Paul Supporters Panic Over False News Story

Update: So I'm wrong...Lets get those boycotts rollin!


Rumors went out that Ron Paul was being excluded from a FOX Debate and his fans freaked out, as they have become famous for doing. They called for boycotts and protests, etc. Turns out that he was never even excluded from any debate, and that the debate in question didn't even exist. Oops! Panic buttons off.
