A Reminder of What Rand Paul Will Have to Overcome
His dotty dad's website, for starters. The Ron Paul Institute put up a post by 9-11 Truther Paul Craig Roberts suggesting that the Charlie Hebdo massacre was a false-flag operation:
The Charlie Hebdo affair has many of the characteristics of a false flag operation. The attack on the cartoonists’ office was a disciplined professional attack of the kind associated with highly trained special forces; yet the suspects who were later corralled and killed seemed bumbling and unprofessional. It is like two different sets of people.Of course, the miracle passport did nothing of the kind; it was merely one small bit of evidence in a much larger chain.
Usually Muslim terrorists are prepared to die in the attack; yet the two professionals who hit Charlie Hebdo were determined to escape and succeeded, an amazing feat. Their identity was allegedly established by the claim that they conveniently left for the authorities their ID in the getaway car. Such a mistake is inconsistent with the professionalism of the attack and reminds me of the undamaged passport found miraculously among the ruins of the two WTC towers that served to establish the identity of the alleged 9/11 hijackers.
Lew Rockwell's website is amazed that the "neocons" are willing to throw Paul Craig Roberts under the bus:
As for the column run by RPI, it was written by Paul Craig Roberts, PCR is a a former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury and former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal. WSJ is, of course, considered by those in the know, the War Street Journal, i.e. an outlet controlled by the neocons. And PCR was an assistant Treasury Secretary during the period neocon favorite Ronald Reagan was president.So what? Roberts is a nut. As a reminder, Barbara Honegger was in the Reagan Administration too; she's also flipped her lid (actually in her case she showed signs of being wacko beforehand).
