Ron Paul: Haven’t We Already Done Enough Damage in Iraq?

Ron Paul: Because of the government’s foolish policy of foreign interventionism, the U.S. is faced with two equally stupid choices: either pour in resources to prop up an Iraqi government that is a close ally with Iran, or throw our support in with al-Qaeda in Iraq (as we have done in Syria). I say we must follow a third choice: ally with the American people and spend not one more dollar or one more life attempting to re-make the Middle East. Haven’t we have already done enough damage?

Obama Could Be Facing 10 Years to Life in Prison – Judge Napolitano

Judge Andrew Napolitano explains that the Taliban prisoner exchange was illegal because taxpayer dollars were spent to remove the prisoners from Guantanamo Bay without giving Congress a 30 day notice. Napolitano goes a step further by pointing out that President Obama has provided material assistance (human assets) to the Taliban, which has been identified by Congress to be a non-state terrorist organization. This is a crime punishable by imprisonment of 10 years to life, which covers all Americans–including the President.

Ron Paul: Obama’s Foreign Policy Rhetoric Does Not Match US Actions
