Ron Paul In The Race, Says We Shouldn’t Have Killed Bin Laden
Texas Congressman Ron Paul is running again for the Republican nomination for president. And, again, he is not afraid to take positions that don’t comport with either major political party.
Ron Paul says he would not have authorized the mission that led to the death of Osama bin Laden, and that President Barack Obama should have worked with the Pakistani government instead of authorizing a raid.
“I think things could have been done somewhat differently,” Paul said this week. “I would suggest the way they got Khalid [Sheikh] Mohammed. We went and cooperated with Pakistan. They arrested him, actually, and turned him over to us, and he’s been in prison. Why can’t we work with the government?”
Paul believes we violated the rule of law.
“I think respect for the rule of law and world law and international law. What if he’d been in a hotel in London? We wanted to keep it secret, so would we have sent the airplane, you know the helicopters in to London, because they were afraid the information would get out?”Click here for reuse options!
