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.

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.
Of course, the miracle passport did nothing of the kind; it was merely one small bit of evidence in a much larger chain.

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).

"The Charlie Hebdo affair has many of the characteristics of a false flag operation."

Yeah, an attack on a largely unimportant target that most French people didn't give a crap about. Text-book false flagging right there.



"The attack on the cartoonists’ office was a disciplined professional attack of the kind associated with highly trained special forces"

Because regular guys just can't be trained to handle weapons and fire and maneuver...oh wait, I think they call that Infantry training. In fact, there was nothing Special Forces about the attack at all, other than the facial hair.


"...yet the suspects who were later corralled and killed seemed bumbling and unprofessional. It is like two different sets of people."

Or maybe, unlike Special Forces, they failed to plan and practice their extraction from the target, and have contingency plans...like Special Forces usually do...

"Usually Muslim terrorists are prepared to die in the attack..."

Usually? You mean like AQ in Iraq? Because those guys weren't so big on martyrdom.


"...yet the two professionals who hit Charlie Hebdo were determined to escape and succeeded..."

Sort of like the Madrid train bombers. Oh wait, that undermines the premise.

"Their identity was allegedly established by the claim that they conveniently left for the authorities their ID in the getaway car."

Funny thing about Europeans, they don't keep their ID in their pants like Americans. I can tell you how many times I'd dealt with French folks who have to fish their passports out of a bag in the back of their car or trunk.

Not even remotely strange.


"Such a mistake is inconsistent with the professionalism of the attack"

Hardly.


"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."

And here we see his problem. He's a moron.
