Ron Paul: Mossad behind first World Trade Center attack?

In yesterday’s Washington Post, I point out some of Ron Paul’s dangerous foreign policy views. But did you know that Paul once suggested in one of his now-infamous newsletters that the Mossad might have been behind the first World Trade Center attack?

The New Republic recently catalogued some of Paul’s “most incendiary newsletters.” They include this gem from the April 1993 Ron Paul Survival Report, which appeared not long after the first attempted bombing of the World Trade Center:

Some people think this is a frame-up by anti-Arab interests.  Recall that after the Kennedy assassination, Lee Harvey Oswald was apprehended and accusations were made. We’re still sorting that one out. From my point of view, it’s hard to believe the perpetrators could be as stupid as the authorities suggest…. Whether it was a set up by the Israeli Mossad, as a Jewish friend of mine suspects, or was truly a retaliation by the Islamic fundamentalists, matters little.

Actually, it matters a lot. Paul has tried to distance himself from his newsletters, but this appears in the first person in a publication called the Ron Paul Survival Report. It’s hard for him to disavow. And even if someone else penned those words, why exactly did Paul have someone ghostwriting newsletters in his name who believes it is plausible that the Mossad tried to blow up the Twin Towers?

The fact is Ron Paul has long flirted with conspiracy theories. As I point out in today’s Post, in a 2007 radio interview he called the 9/11 commission a “cover up” and demanded a new investigation into what really happened that day. And as Michael Warren points out in the Weekly Standard, Paul declared in a 1990 C-SPAN interview that “there’s pretty good evidence that those who are involved in the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations usually end up in positions of power. And I believe this is true.”

It is simply amazing that a man who believes the Mossad may have been behind the World Trade Center bombings, the 9/11 Commission was a “cover up,” and the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations secretly run the world, is in a virtual dead-heat for first place in the Iowa caucuses.

And then there is this 1988 interview in which Paul calls for the elimination of both the FBI and the CIA:

  1. I’ve been studying 9/11 for almost 3 years now and know without any doubt at all that those horrible crimes were not committed by Muslim terrorists and will debate you on this subject any time any place. It is a conspiracy but it ain’t no theory so quit calling us that okay?

  2. Mossad was behind the King David Hotel Bombing. So what? You think this discredits Paul. If it was his words, then I respect him for telling the truth. Remember it was also Israel who attacked the USS Liberty – with permission of course, from the US.

  3. I haven’t been looking seriously at this for that long, but anyone who looks at it and try’s to answer some questions, know there is a lot more going on than the government will tell.

    1. No evidence of a plane crash at the pentagon or at the field site. That is too weird to be explained except to say there was no other planes involved. Missiles and bombs fit the evidence better. Also see
    Ventura’s interview with the head of FBI, who virtually said without saying that 911 was a false flag.

    Bin Laden was a CIA operative during Afagan/Russian war. Bin Laden’s capture was cancelled under Bush administration.

    2. The owner of twin towers is on youtube saying about building 7 to pull it. How could this be possible on the same day unless he knew it was preplanned with explosives to bring it down.

    3. Eyewitnesses to Oklahoma city bombing say FBI was on the scene instantly and what they did was to take out documents and threaten local police and reporters. New York times bought out the paper and fired the reporters.

    4. David Hendly arrested in the Mumbai attack was a Drug Enforcement Administration employee and close assoc, with the CIA.

    5. The Christmas day bomber was put on the plane by a CIA operative.

    6. We go to war with Iraq on falsified intel. Now they want to lead us in the same way with Iran.

    The truth sucks, but Ron Paul is willing to tell it and not be corrupted.

    Stand with Ron Paul. He is being a hero for this country. Protect the constitution. Protect America.

  4. Marc Theissen, I just googled you. You are not a real journalist. You work as a government propagandist.

    It’s too bad the wall street journal won’t hire real journalists instead of political propagandists.
