Editor's note: GOP Rep. Ron Paul weighs in on the death of Osama bin Laden and the costs of the long, intensive hunt for the terrorist.
Why does anyone care what this old whiner has to say? I suppose its because he's the chair of the House commission that rules over the FED (which he wants to abolish-gold standard, anyone?) Anyway, he's nothing more than a penny pinching Scrooge McDuck who wants to drag us back to the days of the John Birch society with his calls for a "revolution"
(check out the rhetoric in his last campaign for President). He's the inspiration for today's "Tea Party".
Ron Paul’s Family was not slaughtered by the actions of Bin Laden, and
his regime, So it is easy for him to put a price tag on it.
The Republican Rep on before Ron Paul was mixing Pres. Obama's name with OBL's name. He also indicated that he viewed 3 "live" pictures. Was OBL alive in some photos? He also did not know what he was talking about when he tried to explain the dead OBL photos with entrance and exit wounds. Do you ever correct them on some of these things?
It costs too much???? Ten years???? If we did things right as we are doing now it would probably take less than 10 years thus decreasing the cost. 8 years under President Bush, 2 years under Pres. Obama. Besides how much is the sadness and terror caused by Bin Laden to the American people worth?

Ron Paul is correct. Barrack Obama also put the u.s. troops and our nation at risk by sending military operations into Pakistan. Pakistan is armed with nuclear weapons and has a standing military. Barrack Obama is wreckless, and the foreign policy that he promised to change has not been changed but expanded to more war and occupation. Its time to bring the troops home and re-assess the foreign policies flaws. John F Kennedy spoke about it being a grave danger to repeat a mistake.With that said America,its time to correct the mistake.
Mr paul has a good point. Bring our troops home. You cant trust the pakistan goverment.
I am not going to argue with you ... While you make annoucements on the alleged plans of one of the worlds most renouned terrorists for the sake of politics ... i m sure I shall get to clean up your mess ...
Just because Bin Laden is supposedly dead doesnt mean that the terror attacks will go away. Afghanistan is still unstable and if we pull out now the country will go back to the way it was before we arrived. If anythng we should be pulling out of Iraq and quit sending billions of aid to all these countrys when our goverment isnt take care of us.
