Why the 9/11 Truthers Love Ron Paul

If Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) ever admitted to being a 9/11 truther himself, his presidential goose would officially be cooked. I'm not postulating that he believes that the United States brought down the World Trade Center towers but a significant contingent of his followers believe that. In fact, this weekend, Paul seemed to meet the truthers half way by blaming the United States for the attacks. Truthers LOVE that kinda talk. It's their red meat and it's eerily similar to liberal groupthink.

Via the Des Moines Register:
Two weeks away from the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, presidential candidate and Texas Rep. Ron Paul says that U.S. intervention in the Middle East is a main motivation behind terrorist hostilities toward America, and that Islam is not a threat to the nation.

At a campaign stop on Saturday in Winterset, one man asked Paul how terrorist groups would react if the U.S. removed its military presence in Middle Eastern nations, a move the candidate advocates.

“Which enemy are you worried that will attack our national security?” Paul asked.

“If you’re looking for specifics, I’m talking about Islam. Radical Islam,” the man answered.

“I don’t see Islam as our enemy,” Paul said. “I see that motivation is occupation and those who hate us and would like to kill us, they are motivated by our invasion of their land, the support of their dictators that they hate.”
I've never looked into Paul's take on whether World War I was justified but the reason the Muslim Brotherhood wants to destroy western civilization has nothing to do with our foreign activities in Muslim lands; it has everything to do with reestablishing the Islamic caliphate known as the Ottoman Empire that the US helped to dismantle after the first World War.

On domestic policy, Ron Paul is Jekyll. On foreign policy, he is Hyde and the Truthers LOVE that 'Hyde side.'
