    When Ron Paul was pressed to be more specific about the number of Al Qaeda he believes is in Egypt, he fell apart, and mumbled something about Al Qaeda could possibly be in the crowd.

      ... I'll ask you how many hairs are on your head... and your answer? not precise his answer was simply that it is so chaotic there is no real way to know how significant the presence of Al Qaeda is in Egypt. Wolf as most media persona's put words in his mouth. He only claimed to be under the assumption that the number of Al Qaeda has grown. Its likely this is an estimate or based on real intel coming from egypt... besides if you were a terrorist where would you hide? somewhere extremely chaotic and confusing? or somewhere where you would look suspicious? okay... thanks

    I'm really curious why you interviewed Ron Paul on international issues. The man wants to build a 5 mile tall wall around the United States and seal out the rest of the world.

    Well Ron Paul, I do not thing he know were Middle East is, Al Qaeda has had strong hold on all of mid east even before America was discovered by a Jew. Columbus was born a Jew covered to catholic by Spain.

    "Why does Obama think he's in charge of Europe, when the USA is broke itself. All this bluff means nothing to Europe, The bigger they think they are, is really a brain of total confusion!"

    Ron Paul has a problem. He says Al Qaeda is growing stronger in Egypt. Al Qaeda believes all Jews must die. He also says that israel should take care of itself and shouldn't receive U.S. aid. What is he saying? Is he saying that problems Jews face aren't our problems? Senator, exactly what exactly are our problems in the Middle East?

      First gee sam Ron Paul is a Congressman. If Al Qaeda "believes all Jews must die", and "Al Qaeda is growing stronger in Egypt" then why would we keep sending money there? To help kill jews!?
