DemocracyNow.org - During the Republican presidential debate
on Monday, September 12th, Congressman Ron Paul of Texas drew boos and
jeers from the crowd and his fellow debaters for his views on the roots
of 9/11 attacks. Dr. Paul criticized U.S. foreign policy as the catalyst
stating, "we're under great threat because we occupy so many
countries... We have to be honest with ourselves. What would we do if
another country, say China, did to us what we do to all those countries
over there?" For more, Democracy Now! spoke with Professor Emeritus of
Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Noam Chomsky.
Dr. Chomsky responded to Dr. Paul's comments by reciting the history of
antagonism to US policy, concluding: "I think what he said is completely
uncontroversial. You can read it in government documents."
