Ron Paul Wouldn’t Have Ordered Bin Laden Compound Raid



Text  



From Fox News:

“It was absolutely not necessary,” Paul said of the May 1 CIA-led Navy SEALs raid.

The Texas congressman questioned whether Obama could have gotten away with the operation if Usama bin Laden had been in a country other than Pakistan. 

“What if he had been in a hotel in London?” Paul said on Newsradio 1040 WHO. “So would we have sent the … helicopters into London because they were afraid the information would get out? No, you don’t want to do that.”

Paul said the United States should have gone after bin Laden the same way it went after Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, architect of the Sept. 11 attacks, by working with the Pakistan government.

“They arrested him, actually, and turned him over to us,” Paul said, suggesting the same formula should have applied to bin Laden.
