Vito & Phil Welcome Paul To Spokane

House District 3 Reps. Phil Hart (far left) and Vito Barbieri (far right) were on hand to welcome Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul to Spokane Friday night.

Presidential candidate Ron Paul took the hardest shot at President Obama of any of the three Republicans who campaigned in Idaho this week, accusing Obama of assassinating a 16-year-old U.S. citizen last fall. Paul said the Obama administration’s change in national policy in 2011 to allow the killing of American citizens accused of terrorist acts amounted to an attack on its own citizens. The administration fired missiles from drones in Yemen and killed three citizens, including Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a Denver native and the son of al-Qaida leader Anwar al-Awlaki. “Just because someone seems to be a bad person is no justification,” Paul told his audience at CenturyLink Arena in Boise. “The worse a person is, the more important it is they get justice so we get justice”/Rocky Barker, Statesman.
