5/15/17 Ron Paul on the 10th anniversary of his faceoff with Rudy Giuliani in the South Carolina presidential debate

Former Congressman Ron Paul discusses his argument with Rudy Giuliani during the 2007 Republican presidential debates about the link between US foreign policy and 9/11 (Rudy denied there was such a thing). Paul was the only one of 10 candidates on stage who opposed the Iraq War, and he stuck to his principles even after the crowd’s thunderous approval of Giuliani’s patriotism-laden rebuke. Paul’s debate answer has stood the test of time, and helped popularize the idea that an interventionist foreign policy causes violent blowback.
