Paul did not say it was “our” fault (the American people)...but rather the past 30 years of US CIA and military policy in the region. 9-11 could not be avoided. The question is...how do we stop it from happening again?

If you get stung by a bee, do you run around flailing your arms trying to knock down every beehive you come across? (brute force)..

or do you burn the hive up from within (intelligence and counter terror)..

It’s a question of tactics. Paul disagrees with the Normandy-esque invasions favored by the neocons, and I think he is right.

The most sense I've heard out of anyone on this forum so far!
