There is No Way That Ron Paul Can Not Know Why This is a Terrible Idea
Hat tip to Bosch.
Ron Paul’s supporters plan on another run for the presidency from the Texas Congressman, and some are saying that the mainstream has finally begun to embrace his ideas on economics and the Fed. On foreign policy and national defense, though, perhaps Paul is farther out than ever. In a radio interview on Tuesday, reported this morning in Politico, Paul said he would not have greenlighted the mission that killed Osama bin Laden, and would have worked with Pakistan to arrest him instead
Go and read the whole thing. Ed of course eloquently explains what everyone knows: Pakistan could not be trusted to capture bin Laden for us. Anyone with the most elementary education in foreign policy is going to understand this.
It’s one thing to be ignorant and say something stupid. It’s a whole other to be malicious. There’s no possible way a Congressman who has been engaged in the foreign policy debates of the last ten years can not understand this basic fact, not opinion, but fact about the nature of our Pakistani “ally.”
