Ron Paul’s Tough Questions for Hillary Clinton


Madam Speaker: And being the wise legislature that he is, Dr. Paul elected to stay here, and so he gets to ask his question. Congressman Paul of Texas is recognized. I’ve learned not to say anything negative about Ron Paul.

Ron Paul: Welcome, Madam Secretary. I do want to get your comments about the stir that was caused by the apology over the Quran. And the administration has received a lot of criticism about this, and I think you’ve expressed some point that maybe this doesn’t help your job any by stirring up the resentment. But the whole issue about apology I think is an interesting one from a national level, and I recall what happened after Mac Demurer wrote his memoirs and he was apologetic about what happened and about how he orchestrated the Vietnam War. And a reporter asked him if he should apologize, and he said, “What good is an apology if the policies are wrong. You have to learn something from it and change the policy”. So a lot of emotions come out on this issue of an apology.

And I keep thinking that those who didn’t criticize him, I don’t think they criticized the last administration when President apologized for using the Quran as a target. So, sometimes apologizes aren’t always all equal. But with even that said, there were torture photograph before and they were very aggravating. Recently, there was urinating on bodies, on corpses, we didn’t particularly apologize for those, did we? I mean, there weren’t apologies there. But some of these things are emotional. But what about the whole idea of invading a country and occupying a country and disturbing their country, creating hundreds of thousands of refugees and suffering. Does it ever get to a point where apologizing about the Quran is rather minor to some of the other problems that we have created in these countries, could can comment on that?

Hillary Clinton: Well, Congressman, first I appreciate the very measured comments you’ve made about our presidents, not only this one, but prior presidents offering apologizes when we are deeply sorry for unfortunate incidents that occurred, that were not intentional, and which we know have emotional resonance with people. The larger question you ask, I think it’s also important to put into context that President Obama promised to wind down the Iraq War, he has done so. He’s in the process of transitioning out of Afghanistan in a manner that is done appropriately in keeping with the very large decisions that have to be made about helping the afghans defend themselves, working with our partners and allies in that effort. And, I think the underlying premises, certainly one that can be debated among Americans of good faith, I believe that we were justified in going to Afghanistan, which is …

Ron Paul: I want to apologize because I don’t want to get on that subject.

Hillary Clinton: And I accept your apology.

Ron Paul: Okay, there you go. But I do want to touch on something else to get a little different perspective on the nuclear enrichment in Iran. Because we hear different stories, even in Israel there are debates. Tamir Pardo actually said that if they get a weapon, it’s not an existential threat to Israel, so I’m sure there’s probably a more nuanced debate in Israel than there is here sometimes. But isn’t it true that Iran has the right to enrich up to 20% for peaceful purposes? The way we talk and hear discussions, most people believe that they have absolutely no right to enrich. And don’t they have that protection under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty? But it never seems to have a balanced approach to that. And the best I can tell from what I read, there’s no evidence that they have a bomb, there’s no evidence that they’re on the verge of getting it, and even the administration, whether it’s the Clapper or general Dempsey, are saying, “It won’t make any sense to have a preemptive attack on there”. Could you give us a sense of a proper balance here, because a lot of people are convinced it’s Syria and then it’s Iran, and I’m personally concerned about that, because the last thing the American people need is another war. We don’t have the money, we don’t have the resources, and the military is not ready for another war.

Hillary Clinton: Congressman, I would direct your attention to the most recent Director-General’s report from the International Atomic Energy Agency, it’s not an American document, which outlines the concerns about the non-peaceful use of civilian nuclear power. There is increasing evidence that what the Iranians do is not consistent with their right to have the peaceful use of nuclear power. And I’ll be happy to get you a copy of that, because I think you asked a very important set of questions.

Madam Speaker: Thank you so much, Congressman. Thank you, Madam Secretary.

    the basques(atlanteans n their blood brothers the catalans) are of a holy bloodline.We colonized the world n schooled humanity.But this was concealed by the so called “jews” and romans

    Pass it on..justice

  • Maybe I missed it but did she answer a single thing he asked???

  • Wow did politicians stop practicing bullshitting other honest politicians.

  • Electrified crime fighting gloves, Exosceletons, “Big Dog” Carrier and Fighter robots, 30 000 mini-drones watching US Land AND airspace able to spray or drop a grenade at any terrorrist in sight.

    You better get ready “Terrorist”.



  • Wow women who arnt afraid to have a voice 😀

  • Rick, Newt and Mitt have an agenda that is counterproductive to the health of America.

  • Do you think that the Pope will issue a decree stating that all cardinals, bishops, and priest are ordered to wear a condom, while engaging in sex too protect the child?
    Rick you should change religions.
    Please Paul do not try to change parties. WE do not need “booger eating morons” in our party. It is obvioius that they all belong in your party.

      Mitt Romney = Judas Goat

      If not aware of this olden days’ meaning — here it is:

      When sheep are led to be slaughtered, they instinctively feel something is wrong. So, mill around and bleat, but won’t enter the gate leading to the one waiting to smash their heads with a sledge hammer. So, a Judas goat is placed in the pen. The Judas goat is trained to associate with sheep or cattle, leading them through the gate, and passing it safely — while its own life is spared, the ones flowing get their brains bashed!!

      Mitt will lead us — and at the end of the gate, Bama will wield the sledge hammer….

  • Just watched five minutes of World News Now ABC super tues. They spoke of all 3 clowns and not a word of the truth teller Ron Paul. This is so blatant its sickening.



  • this man is brilliant, unlike some retards… w8 let me repeat. unlike EVERYONE else this man knows what to say and what is right and wrong
    Ron Paul 2012

  • “the change in foreign policy will be a long, dragged out process absent a catastrophic event such as a new pearl harbor…very scary

  • Some great comments…when will people just wake up???? These are the the drum beats we heard 10 years ago…remember what what said “

  • Hillary deserves to be dragged through the streets and tortured to death just like Gaddaffi. Even though Gaddaffi didn’t deserve it, this evil cunt does.

  • For or against won’t even matter since to either ignore or endorse Ron Paul is suicide both ways. Support him: make billionaire enemies, against him: make 7 billion enemies, take your pick! Either way it’s gonna get ugly and a little soul searching would do everyone a ton of good. Everyone on both sides,do what your hearts guide you to do and shed fear as the weakness it is to replace it with raw courage! It’s never too late to do the right thing, so choose wisely. INFOWARS.COM!

  • Ron Paul is the only one talking intelligently out of all these other fake candidates. All the other people just go around issues promising unicorns and rainbows instead of getting to the truth, even if we don’t like hearing it.

  • Ron paul is not going to win dipshits…..he hasnt won a single fucking primary yet. quit being in denial and face the fact that your country is fucked!

  • “We are deeply sorry for unfortunate incidents that occur that were not intentional and which we know have emotional resonance with people ….” Is the hideous cunt here referring to the troops torturing and urinating on the corpses of dead Iraqis because if she (it?) is how is it that she (it) can get away with such blatant bullshit !!!! Surely if there was a God this thing called Hillary would be forcibly removed from planet Earth ….
