As the Iowa campaign moves into its final, frantic days, a slumping Ron Paul came out swinging Sunday to deny charges he believed the U.S. was behind the 9/11 terror attacks.
A longtime Paul aide claimed last week that the Texas congressman thought the CIA had a hand in bringing down the World Trade Center — and that President George W. Bush was tipped off ahead of time.
He engaged in conspiracy theories including perhaps the attacks were coordinated with the CIA, and that the Bush administration might have known about the attacks ahead of time. He expressed no sympathies whatsoever for those who died on 9/11, and pretty much forbade us staffers from engaging in any sort of memorial expressions, or openly asserting pro-military statements in support of the Bush administration.
Eric Dondero is a disgruntled former staffer who was fired for performance issues,” Paul spokesman Jesse Benton told CBS News in an email. “He has zero credibility and should not be taken seriously."
This is one area he has to steer clear of. I have a feeling he does believe it, but to waste his potential by being honest at this point is political suicide.
