Ron Paul wouldn't have approved Osama bin Laden operation
By: Juana Summers May 12, 2011 07:27 AM EDT
Ron Paul says he would not have authorized the mission that led to the death of Osama bin Laden, and that President Barack Obama should have worked with the Pakistani government instead of authorizing a raid.
"I think things could have been done somewhat differently," Paul said this week. "I would suggest the way they got Khalid [Sheikh] Mohammed. We went and cooperated with Pakistan. They arrested him, actually, and turned him over to us, and he's been in prison. Why can't we work with the government?"
Asked by WHO Radio's Simon Conway whether he would have given the go-ahead to kill bin Laden if it meant entering another country, Paul shot back that it "absolutely was not necessary."
"I don't think it was necessary, no. It absolutely was not necessary," Paul said during his Tuesday comments.

Just another reaosn to oppose this clown
I’m almost certain that if I look up BUFFOON in the dictionary I’ll find Ron Paul’s picture.
Bambi did “work with the Pockee stahn” government. RP njust can’t see it.
Didn’t know that much about Ron Paul was was willing to consider him as a candidate. This comment completely disqualifies him IMO.
Ron Paul is your typical “Libertarian” Coward who sees the US Constitution as a dodge and something to hide behind, not defend.
Not surprised. Ron Paul is an assclown.
I’m glad he made this statement. It will drive more people away from this idiot.
There is a libertarian streak in most of us Cons, but where we part ways with the true "believers" is on National Defense and Security.
He is honestly expressing his views. Unfortunately for him, his views are totally out of touch with the vast majority of voters. He is unelectable.
“There is a libertarian streak in most of us Cons, but where we part ways with the true “believers” is on National Defense and Security.”
Its called growing up.
I like the guy but honestly, some of the shit he spews is pure ignorant idiocy. =.=
RP has a point......
We don’t know for certain WHO got wiped in the “operation.”
Ron Paul would be almost as bad a president as 0 but I’m glad he’s pushing to audit the Fed.
At least he’s consistent. He (and the Libertarian Party) lost me on 9/11 when he came out against responding to the attacks.
Don't you know, it's OUR fault the arab world hates us. Did a little deeper, and his foreign "policy" thoughts will REALLY make you say WTF.
Sticking to your political beliefs is one thing, but this was a necessity for the nation. Sorry, RP. Some things about you I like, but when it comes to something as obvious as this, you are just not the man.
