Ron Paul in Businessweek

Maria Bartiromo interviews Ron Paul:

Who are your economic advisers?

I don't have any. I read Austrian economics, which I've been doing for 30 years. So my advisers have been [von] Mises and Hayek and Sennholz.

Ron Paul's Stand on Iran, According to the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR)

The Council on Foreign Relations has put up a bio of Ron Paul on its website, purportedly trying to set a negative tone with regards to Ron's statements that the site quoted -- statements that sound as if Ron is for Islamoterrorists conspiring to attack our home soil at any given moment.

This is coming from the CFR:

In a speech before the House in April 2007, Paul (R-TX) criticized what he sees as neoconservative efforts to drum up support for military action against Iran. Paul said that although the country “is hardly a perfect democracy, its system is far superior to most of our Arab allies about which we never complain.” The Texas congressman warned that a war against Iran would be disastrous and dismissed the justifications for military action against Iran as “propaganda,” saying that “Iran doesn’t have a nuke and is nowhere close to getting one, according to the CIA.” Instead, Paul advocates a policy of non-interventionism.
