Can Rudy be Educated?

Probably not, Rudy’s an old dog.

Yesterday, Ron Paul held a news conference to give it a try anyway.

The controversy started at the second Republican debate.

Rep. Paul said that the the attacks on the United States on September 11th were “blowback” from the American government’s interventionist foreign policy. Giuliani, insisting that they hate us for our “freedom,” demanded Paul retract his statement – which Paul refused to do.

Yesterday, Rep. Paul presented a reading list to Rudy of several books (as well as a “Cliff Notes” version in case Rudy lacks the time and attention-span) to educate him on the causes of 9/11.

Michael Scheuer, the former chief of the CIA’s bin Laden Unit, appeared at the event to support Paul’s candidacy and support his position on the causes of 9/11.

The event received excellent news coverage. Watch it now.
