Rick Santorum's neocon warmongering problem

Rick Santorum has a little problem. It's his neocon warmongering problem. He thought he would try to score political points by taking a cheap shot at Congressman Ron Paul. In his feeble attempt to score points he mischaracterized Ron Paul's position on 9/11. Ron Paul does not blame the United States, or the whole of the country, for 9/11. Ron Paul says that the foreign policy of politicians like Rick Santorum has consequences.

However, I will concede that so long as the official government story on 9/11 remains intact, Ron Paul can appear to be somewhat less than patriotic for not supporting the war. But suppose one questions the government's official conspiracy theory. Does that mean the person blames the entire country? No. If 19 guys, commandeered by guys from caves in Afghanistan, could have pulled off 9/11, then I don't know why 19 other guys couldn't have done the same thing to then blame it on somebody else. Ron Paul's delivery is also not the best.
