Bill O’Reilly vs Ron Paul
Ron Paul and Bill O’Reilly had a lively debate about foreign policy. I think that O’Reilly, while granted he kept interrupting Paul, got the best of him in this debate. In the final minute or so, while O’Reilly did falsely accuse Ron Paul of opposing the Afghan war from the beginning, Paul did come back and call for the withdrawal of American soldiers from Afghanistan. O’Reilly also got Paul when O’Reilly made the basic distinction between Saudi and Iranian policy toward terrorism. While it is true that Al-Qaeda consists largely of Saudis, the Saudi government does not sponsor terrorism, unlike Iran. Also around 3 minutes or so left, didn’t Ron Paul condone the killing of American soldiers in Iraq by Iranian surrogates as “logical and defensive”?
