August 13, 2014 – In an interview with RT, former Congressman Ron Paul discussed America’s foreign policy in Iraq. He expressed his concern with the idea that the U.S. has a moral obligation to maintain a presence in and serve the needs of Iraq.
From the interview:
“I do not believe we have a moral responsibility to pack up and send more troops over there. Every day you read about more military going in, and of course they said we don’t want to have boots on the ground. Well, we never got rid of the boots on the ground. We had special forces and the CIA and others involved—very much involved, always prepared to go back in. So no, I think it’s a bad situation and we don’t have this obligation.”
