Apparently, there was more fun at the Republican debate than I was aware of.

Ron Paul, who apparently has opposed the Iraq war from the beginning, had the temerity to suggest that “the 9-11 killers were ‘over here because we are over there.'” Patrick Buchanan (yes, the conservative) writes that “Osama bin Laden in his declaration of war in the 1990s said it was U.S. troops on the sacred soil of Saudi Arabia, U.S. bombing and sanctions of a crushed Iraqi people, and U.S. support of Israel’s persecution of the Palestinians that were the reasons he and his mujahedeen were declaring war on us.”

Buchanan, too, has long objected to this war. I guess that makes him a traitor, too.
