Daniel Halper, a neocon journo over at the financial failure The Weekly Standard, has attributed an article penned by Paul Craig Roberts to former Congressman Ron Paul.
Roberts is a former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury and former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal.
An institue (sic) named for the father of possible presidential candidate Rand Paul has published a piece saying the Charlie Hebdo massacre, like 9/11, was a false flag operation. The claim comes in piece titled, “Charlie Hebdo Shootings: False Flag?,” put online today at the Ron Paul Institute.
Halper does not bother to provide a link to the article in question, thus demonstrating his lack of journalistic ethos. If he had, he would discover the true author of the piece in question.
Halper and the neocons are so blinded by their hatred of Paul and libertarianism they can’t be bothered to check facts.
The real target of the attack is not Ron Paul, however. It is his son, who is preparing to run for president. Ron Paul no longer poses a political threat to the neocons, but his son, who has expressed libertarian opinions on foreign policy, does.
The neocons prefer Hillary Clinton or a suitable warmonger in the Republican party.
Paul Craig Roberts made valid points in the article misattributed to Paul, but we cannot expect the establishment, especially the neocon faction within, to entertain reality.
In the bizarro world of the neocons, it is incomprehensible that the political class would engage in a false flag event to produce a desirable result, namely get a flagging war on terror back in gear and the clash of civilizations on track.
Halper, now faced with the facts, should humbly apologize to Ron Paul. He will not, of course, and the war party charade will continue.
There is a good reason The Weekly Standard is a financial failure dependent on the good will of Rupert Murdoch and other “conservatives” with deep pockets.
It is a propaganda mill for neocons and their policies of murder and endless war.
Most people see it for what it is.
