Ron Paul vs. Giuliani on the Root Causes of Terrorism

SilentPatriot at Crooks and Liars - video (Windows Media and QuickTime) of Ron Paul calling 9/11 "blowback" from US violence in the Middle East. Giuliani, and most of the crowd, didn't like that at all. I, of course, believe that the U.S. government was responsible for the building demolitions in New York City on September 11, 2001. But Dr. Paul's explanation for the mainstream theory makes a lot more sense than "they hate us for our freedom". Then again, using rational thought to reason about religious nuts, like President Bush, is ridiculous.

MSNBC has story and video of the entire debate.

The New York Times has a transcript.
