Paul Newsletter: OK City Was An Inside Job

Editor's Note:

While Ron Paul was running one of the largest OBGYN practices in Texas a newsletter was being published in his name. This newsletter included some content that is now being used against Dr. Paul as he runs for President. Paul claims that he was not the author of the questionable content and he was too busy with his medical practice to manage his newsletter.

Most of the mainstream media are focusing on the parts of Paul's newsletter that sound racist, but a few are pointing out Paul's mention of conspiracy theories related to "false-flag" terrorism. Dr. Paul has frequently questioned the official story described in the 9/11 Comission Report. This Buzzfeed article explains how Paul's newsletter included a "false-flag" conspiracy theory for the OKC bombing of the Murrah building.  

It's a side of Ron Paul that most people never hear about. I happen to find it refreshing that somebody in congress questions authority and discusses some of the more crazy possiblilities with the American people. Our government has lied to us on many occasions and I think consideration and discussion of alternate theories is a healthy exercise regardless of how insane some of the theories may sound. Dr. Paul clearly takes his position very seriously and he doesn't let fear of ridicule stand in the way of honest discussions about his thoughts and fears.

A 1995 issue of the Ron Paul Survival Report, a newspaper published by the future presidential candidate, speculates that the federal government bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. The previously unreported newsletter, part of a series which Paul began publishing early in his congressional career in the late 1970's, was part of a trove this reporter discovered when originally breaking the story for The New Republic in 2008. Full of racist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic statements, not to mention a variety of quack science and conspiracy theories, the newsletters have once again become an issue as Paul seeks to stay in the Republican presidential primary for the long haul.
