Ron Paul already has a bad reputation as a 9/11 truther. Rather than work to squash that rep, today he appears on The Alex Jones Show.
Alex Jones runs a couple websites, Infowars.com being one of them. Alex has a whole page on his website Infowars focused on he premise that 9/11 was an inside job. In the picture to the left, Alex sports an Investigate 9/11″ t-shirt.
Here are some quotes from Inforwars, where Alex discusses the in-your-face attitude of the Illuminati.

Umm, at this point he is "people like this."
Denies involvement in 9/11 conspiracy theories
Paul has said that he does not believe the attack on the World Trade Center was a part of a government conspiracy and has explicity denied any association with the 9/11 Truth Movement. On the Mike Gallagher radio show on July 19, 2007, he said: Some people try to twist what I say and turn it into that, and I think some of my supporters lean in that direction, but thats not my position. I do think governments basically inept. I mean we were spending $40 billion a year collecting intelligence and a lot of information was out there. We had one FBI agent, I think sent dozens and dozens of memos to his superiors saying that there are people trying to fly airplanes but not land them, and nobody would pay any attention. So, I dont think thats a conspiracy. I think thats a lot of bureaucracy that doesnt work very well. And, then when we have government investigations, whether its 9/11 or assassinations, I think the main goal is to protect the government and to protect their ineptness - not - and that is a lot different than saying Oh they conspired to do this so they can use this as an excuse to spread the war in the Middle East whether they had anything to do with 9/11 or not. I dont see it that way. But, I believe some who did want to spread the war would use it as an opportunity. But, it wasnt something that was deliberately done.  When Paul was asked by Shawn Wasson in an interview on LiveLeak.com if he believed that 9/11 was orchestrated by the government, Paul responded emphatically, Absolutely not. Paul was again asked in an interview on Fox News on August 5 if he agreed with the conspiracy theorists; he explicitly said that he does not believe that 9/11 was a government conspiracy and that he does not think the government would stage an attack.
You are right, he doesn’t ‘associate’ he simply courts them.
I went to Google and got the link for the Alex Jones web site and it says Ron Paul is the guest for today.
Ron is a good man, but Alex Jones is Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. I agree, what was he thinking?
