On ABC’s This Week, Candidate Ron Paul-the man who put the the ‘aryan’ in Libertarian denied ever entertaining the “Truther” Conspiracy (that 9/11 was some sort of inside job).
Like his comments about the news letters this isn’t exactly truthful. While Paul has not publicly said that 9/11 was an inside job he has certainly indicated that was the case with his constant claims that we weren’t being told everything about 9/11
- JANUARY 17, 2007: On the Alex Jones show, (with Jack Blood guest-hosting) Ron Paul says “..a real investigation isn’t going to happen. But I think we have to keep pushing for it.”
“CALLER: I want a complete, impartial, and totally independent investigation of the events of September 11, 2001 . I’m tired of this bogus garbage about terrorism. Ask Michael Meacher about how he feels about this bogus war on terrorism. Can you comment on that please?
HON. DR. RON PAUL: Well, that would be nice to have. Unfortunately, we don’t have that in place. It will be a little bit better now with the Democrats now in charge of oversight. But you know, for top level policy there’s not a whole lot of difference between the two policies so a real investigation isn’t going to happen. But I think we have to keep pushing for it. And like you and others, we see the investigations that have been done so far as more or less cover-up and no real explanation of what went on. Source National Examiner
Note: Paul is often on Alex Jones’ show–Jones is an extreme conspiracy theorist who makes Jesse Ventura look sane.
- FEBRUARY 2007: Ron Paul is questioned by Student Scholars for 9/11 Truth saying he would support a new investigation run by Denis Kucinich
- June 2007- Ron Paul says that the 9/11 investigation was a cover-up, similar to that of the Murder of JFK, Waco, and Ruby Ridge.
- In 2009 when asked why he doesn’t come out about the truth about 9/11? He doesn’t answer that he believes the conspiracy theories are nonsense–but:
Because I can’t handle the controversy, I have the IMF and Federal Reserve to deal with.
Yes its true Ron Paul has never said that 9/11 was an inside job, he has only hinted at it. But the statements above prove at the very least Congressman Paul, believes that the US Government has been waging a conspiracy to deny Americans the full truth about 9/11. That to me sounds as if he is a 9/11 conspiracy theorist.
