Ron Paul stopped in Ames, Iowa on the campaign trail on Thursday, and used some harsh words to explain President George W Bush’s reaction to the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Specifically, the Texas congressman said that the former president was pretty happy about the events. After all, said Paul, the attacks served as pretext to finally put American troops overseas in what instantly became a justifiable reason for war.

“Think of what happened after 9/11,” Paul told a crowd of around 1,000 in Ames this week. “The minute before there was any assessment, there was glee in the administration because now we can invade Iraq, and so the war drums beat.”

  One Response to “Ron Paul says Bush was thrilled with 9/11”

  1. Bush’s reaction to 911 is of little consequence. He was a “sideshow president” ,put in in order to be so “seemingly stupid” that the “inside job” claims would come across as laughable .
    I’d expect people with the ability to coordinate an “operation” as complex as “Operation 911” would realise some people would not be fooled .So a “contingency plan” would require “plausible deniability” ,lets face it at this Bush was perfect..
    If you can have a document as complex and nuanced as the 342 paged Patriot Act “in place” and ready to go ,you could anticipate the “inside job meme” ,”Game Theory” is tested well beyond some thing like this.
