It's funny that you should use Ron Paul as an example, considering that on July 17, 2001, he predicted that our interventionist foreign policy would lead to terrorist attacks. We all know what happened only two months later.

What interventionist policy led to the attack on 9/11?


Our military presence in Saudi Arabia, sanctions against Iraq, and support for Israel. Bin Laden and Al Qaeda were pretty explicit about the motivation behind the attack.
