Finally in a third update Weigel gets to key point:
As the thread continues to grow, probably worth pointing out that Paul has already named the culprits behind the 9/11 attacks. He did so at the GOP debate.
Have you ever read the reasons they attacked us? They attack us because we’ve been over there; we’ve been bombing Iraq for 10 years.
In other words, Al Qaeda did it. Osama bin Laden did it. Paul’s view is incompatible with the idea that “9/11 was a self-inflicted wound” or the towers came down in controlled demolitions.
Maybe someone should remind Malkin that she only felt the need to smear Paul in the first place was Paul’s statement that a decade of bad Middle East policy created the climate that led Al Qaeda to attack us. That statement precludes Ron Paul from believing that 9-11 was an inside job.
Hopefully, this particular smear has run its course.
