Ron Paul warns that the government might stage a terror attack

No wonder this guy attracts 9-11 truthers. This is why he will never be our nominee.

Republican presidential candidate, Rep. Ron Paul, said the country is in "great danger" of the U.S. government staging a terrorist attack or a Gulf of Tonkin style provocation, as the war in Iraq continues to deteriorate.

The Texas congressman offered no specifics nor mentioned President Bush by name, but he clearly insinuated that the administration would not be above staging an incident to revive flagging support.

"We're in danger in many ways," Paul said on the Alex Jones radio show. "The attack on our civil liberties here at home, the foreign policy that's in shambles and our obligations overseas and commitment which endangers our troops and our national defense."

Paul was asked to respond to comments by anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan that the U.S. is in danger of a staged terror attack or a provocation of an enemy similar to the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964 before the Vietnam War.
What a completely idiotic thing to say. He knows that the government isn't going to stage an attack and he should know that if we are attacked, the left is going to say that it's the government. They aren't going to get that we have an enemy and this will give our enemy cover. This is an irresponsible thing for an elected official to say.
