From a radio interview:

Asked by WHO Radio’s Simon Conway whether he would have given the go-ahead to kill bin Laden if it meant entering another country, Paul shot back that it “absolutely was not necessary.”
“I don’t think it was necessary, no. It absolutely was not necessary,” Paul said during his Tuesday comments. “I think respect for the rule of law and world law and international law. What if he’d been in a hotel in London? We wanted to keep it secret, so would we have sent the airplane, you know the helicopters into London, because they were afraid the information would get out?”

For you Paulistas: WTF, dudes? This is the kind of clear thinking we need at the top?

Like I said before, talk to a Libertarian for more than a minute, and they stop making sense.

I find that this has been discussed in 3 threads already. Simply put, if Paul wins the nomination, then Obama doesn't stand a chance against him. He will shred Obama into pieces.

Paul is actually right in one aspect. Terrorism will go on, the death of UBL may lower the risk in the short term, but terrorism will go on.

Knowing that, was all of the money we spent on these wars worth a short term, temporary change?

ron paul is 100% right.

look at what is going on right now today:

WASHINGTON — President Obama and his legal advisers are deliberating about how the United States military may lawfully continue participating in NATO’s bombing campaign in Libya after next week, when the air war will reach a legal deadline for terminating combat operations that have not been authorized by Congress.

(May 13, 2011) Under the War Powers Resolution of 1973, a president must terminate such operations 60 days after he has formally notified lawmakers about the introduction of armed forces into actual or imminent hostilities. The Libya campaign will reach that mark on May 20.

i seriously doubt if most americans want to stay involved in libya.
