Ron Paul Denies Believing CIA Behind 9/11, Rick Santorum Milks Poll Surge As GOP Braces For Iowa Caucuses


www.nydailynews.com


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.

Well according ot the Main Stream Media, Ron Paul has slipped, with Mitt Romney now being the front runner. Furthermore a long time Paul aide stated that Ron Paul believes that 9/11 was a CIA job, with Ron Paul opposing that statement.

Sounds like Ron is trying to stay on top, but seriously, i don't think he will remain frontrunner and win, however i am hoping so.

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.

Notice the question is advanced knowledge of the attacks, and not anything about 911 conspiracy theories... simply that he may have known it was going to happen.


Right now the election is EVERYONE versus Ron Paul. They will prop up each canidate against Ron Paul, one at a time, while Romney stays relatively unscathed, to emerge the front runner at the appropriate time... of course this is all planned out......

We'll see how it goes. PPP just rolled out their latest Iowa poll, Paul still on top with 20% (Romney/Santorum at 19/18).

Trending up in last two day's worth of polls (Sat: Romney 21, Paul 19, Santorum 18, Newt 14, Perry 10 - Sun: Paul 21, Romney/Santorum 18, Newt 14, Perry 10) - and killing everyone else with the dem/indy support (30% to just 14% each for Santorum and Romney) and 45 & under crowds.

We'll see what happens Tuesday, and how it plays into the later contests, but ALL PAUL SUPPORTERS there better get off their butts and play like we're 20 points behind. It's stacking up to look a lot like Obama's win, if they can get everyone to the caucuses and then have everyone on their game to talk to their fellow Iowans.

*anxious*

Whoa Ron..That's going to be a REAL REAL hard sell if anyone would like to push it and look at this race...does anyone expect mercy??

Ron Paul has been something just short of the Messiah to the Alex Jones network in his interviews and other things he's done for outreach through that outlet. I dare say he didn't become so beloved by saying 9/11 happened the way it was all said to.

I'll really have to look back and think if Paul actually did ever say it. It's like that movie The Sixth Sense. By the time you realize details mattered to pay attention to, too much time has passed to recall it. I'll say the impression no one ever lifted a squeak of a voice to correct WAS that Ron Paul was on board with the need for investigations.

I agree with others here about Paul really wanting to stay clear away from this..but don't lie either. The last thing he needs...(No offense over there)....is to become known to the world as the Mascott of Alex Jones. AJ is a great man for the niche audience he serves...but his success outside of that recently..well... Ahem..

They scream and cry as if Ron Paul is the first person to speculate on that, I mean if he said it, not one of his aides. They seem to be pulling an awful lot of trash out of anyone or anything even remotely related to Ron Paul. But this is not news.

Romney has been chosen by the elites to be our new leader, he is going to win, nothing we can do about it. Just look at the campaign contributions.

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.


This comes from former aid, Eric Dondero.



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."

It seems like Ron Paul really doesn't believe into the conspiracy, if you believe this aid then you have to accept the fact to that he doesn't show sympathy for 9.11 victims. Even when Ron Paul comes out and says that he does not believe the nonsense of the 9/11 conspiracy, people still think he does? Seems like people are in a little denial there.

Eric is the one that started the Ron Paul is anti-gay, anti-Hispanic and other rumors about him. It seems like a smear campaign against him.

I looked for references of Ron Paul saying that he believes in the CIA/Bush was behind the attacks and couldn't find anything. If there is can someone provide a link? I did a real quick search so maybe there is something that I didn't find.

Yep. Because he knows it was really an inside job. I mean at bare minimum, anyone who has done the proper research knows that the official story is utter BS.

But Ron Paul knows the majority of people are sheeple so he doesn't want to destroy his chances since there's more pressing matters at hand... like saving the world from WW3, the constitution and the bankruptcy of America.

Gotta have priorities.

And any republican voting for Romney is a big ignorant or really hates the constitution... why? See my signature. (he signed a permanent assault weapons ban when he was governor)

I don't think "they" have figured out who to prop up as our "leader" yet. But I think Romney would be a good supplant for Obama or "Barry 'he's gonna take my guns(tobaccy spit) Soetoro".
And before you start in...you all have the same guns and bs. You're the ones being taken to the bank by, gasp, one of the largest lobbying groups(lobbyists are bad, right?) In congress in the NRA.

Santorum? LMAOLMAOLMAOLMAOLMAO The poll is probably rigged. Either way if Ron Paul doesn't win we are better off just deep-sixing the Republican Party all together.

Yesterday I just read an article in the Daily Herald or courier mail or whatever mainstream newspaper we get up here. They were talking about the Iowa and the front runners "Mitt Romney", "Bachmann" "Santorum".

No mention or Ron Paul whatsoever... Stupid BS we read. BS propaganda... EVERYWHERE

Ron Paul addressed the Truther Issue during the 2007 debates. How soon people seem to forget.

Simplest way out for Ron Paul here is just to say. So many people think there was a cover up, so I will have an investigation to see if we can get the truth and put the case to bed. If people need to be held to account then so be it. This isnt an admission but its a promise to put peoples minds at rest

I;m definitely among the Paul supporters. This is no secret. Having said that....

Lets not do what we have just gotten done telling Occupy they are hypocrites for. Pretending problems don't even exist!

Ron Paul has said, done and chosen some real stupid things on some issues and how he's presented them. 9/11 IS AMONG THEM. Supporters can try and baffle everyone with B.S. all day and night. It won't change what I said here earlier.

Ron Paul is seen as something above Hero and just short of Messiah to some people in the extreme fringe because he MOST CERTAINLY HAS allowed others to portray him as a 9/11 truther. A it happens, I can't find where he literally HAS said things he can be quoted on for this. However, gimmie a break... This is the political hair splitting Ron Paul is heard to condemn himself, frequently. If you live among something, don't be shocked when your assumed to support the viewpoints your swimming in. Doh!

In fact, on some days, he's come off as the very image of a Truther's truther. This wasn't some goober in a backwater taking Dr. Paul out of context. This was across Prison Planet, Infowars and other places he was APPEARING and taking interviews at regularly.

Sorry...but Paul has to address this head on, not deny it as if he didn't do and say what he did and said. Anything else WILL condemn him to defeat and failure yet again..and that could be tragic for our entire nation.
