‘Do You Believe it Was a False Flag?’ Ron Paul on Paul Craig Roberts’ Controversial Article

by | Jan 16, 2015

RPI Chairman Ron Paul was on NewsMax’s “Midpoint” program today to discuss how blowback should be considered a big factor in the recent attacks in Paris. French and US foreign policy has been very aggressive in the Middle East and the idea that there are no consequences to such actions makes little sense.

Dr. Paul was also questioned about the Ron Paul Institute’s decision to publish an essay by Paul Craig Roberts that highlighted some very unusual facts about the Paris attacks that the mainstream media has chosen to ignore. The attacks have “many of the characteristics” of a false flag operation, wrote Roberts.

Asked by the show’s host, Ed Berliner, whether he believes that the shootings were a false flag attack, Dr. Paul replied:

Well no, obviously not. And I don’t even think Paul Craig Roberts believes that. I think he wanted a discussion and he has some really good things in there. It’s a shame the media doesn’t pick up and say, ‘hey, what about this chief investigator of the event who committed suicide right in the middle of it.’ I have no idea what’s going on there but that, to me, is big stuff.

Paul Craig Roberts is determined to get truth out and to get people to listen and pay attention. The people in this country have lost a lot of confidence in government. We have been trying to get all the answers on Benghazi and of course fast and furious was a scandal. Nobody believes those (government) answers. … So people are very skeptical and this is the whole point.

Dr. Paul went on to point out that on the same day the 17 people were killed in Paris, which he called a horrific event, there were 50 civilians killed in Syria by a US bomb. None of the media reported that, he said. “Why is that not news?” he asked.
