Ron Paul: US govt. knew about 9/11

Former US congressman Ron Paul has suggested that the US government knew about the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks before the incident occurred inside the country.

“I believe that if we ever get the full truth [about 9/11], we’ll find out that our government had it in the records exactly what the plans were, or at least close to it,” Paul said in a radio interview with Money and Markets host Charles Goyette last Friday.

“You already mentioned that [the US government] had been warned that something was going to happen,” he added.

“Does that prove the fact that our president and others actually sat down and laid the plans and did this? I don’t think it does,” he said.

The former presidential candidate also noted that the crimes committed by former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden were “minor” compared to the harm the United States has caused since the 2001 attacks.

“Our own government did more harm to the liberties of the American people than bin Laden did,” Paul said.

Bin Laden “was a monster himself, but that was minor compared to the damage done financially, the people that have died. And here we are, 24 years, and we’re still fighting a war in the pretense that had something to do with 9/11,” he said.

Paul has been a strong critic of US foreign policy in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria.
