Ron Paul, member of the United States House of...

With Congressman Ron Paul’s recent announcement of the formation of his 2012 presidential exploratory committee, my question is, will he throw 9/11 Truth under the bus again, as he did in 2008?

Regular readers to this site will know that when I use such strong language, I don’t use it lightly.

Here’s why I argue he did just that in 2008.

From the 2008 South Carolina Republican primary debate, in response to a question about whether he would disavow the views of 9/11 Truthers, he said:

I don’t endorse anything they say.

Really, Ron? You didn’t endorse them pointing out Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta’s testimony to the 9/11 Commission, which contradicted Vice-President Dick Cheney’s timeline about when he arrived in the bunker by about half an hour?

Is Dick Cheney a reliable source, when he claimed the office of Vice-President isn’t part of the executive branch of government, despite the very Constitution he swore an oath to uphold making the Vice-President first in the line of secession if the President dies or is deemed disabled?

Or the fact that a third steel building fell that day, which wasn’t hit by a plane, unlike the other two, and that the BBC reported it had fallen while it was still clearly standing in the background as the reporter made that false report?

Or at the time, the hundreds of professional architects and engineers with Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, now nearly 1500 of them, who continue to question the official story of 9/11?

While he was one of the few members of Congress who courageously voted against authorization for the war in Afghanistan, and the 2003 Iraq War, would the American people have supported those wars without the events of 9/11? What about the clearly unconstitutional USA PATRIOT ACT?

Time will tell if Ron Paul really meant what he said in 2008, and whether he’ll throw 9/11 Truth under the bus yet again, or whether he’ll separate facts from conclusions, and get to the very root of the justification for so many of the things he opposes.
