Ron Paul: World Worse Off 10 Years After September 11

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul thinks that the United States doesn't understand terrorism and that the country is worse off than before than the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

"We've made things much worse," Paul said on NPR's "Talk of the Nation" Wednesday.

Paul is a known opponent of war; he voted against both Iraq wars and the war in Kosovo.

"Before we invaded Iraq, the Iraqis had never committed any acts of suicide terrorism. By 2007, they were committing over 300 acts of terrorism against Americans or allies of Americans," he said.

Many politicians are weighing in with their thoughts on terrorism and our fight against it with the tenth anniversary of Sept. 11 looming in just a few short days.
