Noninterventionist Policy — Part 2
19 July 2006

2006 Ron Paul 63:1
Mr. PAUL. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

2006 Ron Paul 63:2
Mr. Speaker, I would like to comment just briefly on the comments made by the gentleman from Illinois (Mr. LAHOOD), because I think his point is well taken about the emphasis on this legislation, and to deny that would be just trying to fool one’s self.

2006 Ron Paul 63:3
It is very clear that if one were objective and read this resolution, all the terrorists are on one side and all the victims and the innocents are on the other side, which I, quite frankly, find unfair, especially coming from the position that I want to advocate, neutrality, rather than picking sides.

2006 Ron Paul 63:4
But he also mentioned the fact about trying to change the resolution. I would like to emphasize also that being on the International Relations Committee, I was anxious to see the resolution, but characteristically it was very difficult to get. We didn’t hold hearings and we didn’t debate it and we didn’t get a chance to have amendments to it, and even last night I couldn’t receive it. There were some news articles very early this morning. Lo and behold, they had copies of it. It took me until about 9 o’clock this morning to get it.

2006 Ron Paul 63:5
So I think it would be fairer within this Congress to allow us to have a chance to debate these in the committee, to bring them to the floor.

2006 Ron Paul 63:6
Mr. Speaker, I yield 8 minutes to the gentleman from West Virginia (Mr. RAHALL).
