In this classic speech given on 5/6/1999 from the floor of Congress which aired on C-SPAN, Congressman Ron Paul (R, TX) was opposing a Fiscal Year 1999 Supplemental Spending Appropriations Bill.

He begins by talking about Congressional funding of undeclared wars and then Congress wanting to micromanage the conflicts, and then gets into bin Laden. Keep in mind this was two years and four months before 9/11/2001.

Ron begins:

"All our presidents since World War II have set the standard, that they'll do what they darn well please!

...You talk about unintended consequences! They're so numerous! What about the unintended consequence of supporting the KLA, who's supported by Osama bin Laden!!

"How absurd can it get??

"You know, Osama bin Laden was our good friend because he was a freedom fighter in Afghanistan and we gave him our weapons. And supported him.

"But then, we found out he wasn't our quite so friendly so we arrested or captured a few of his men and he retaliated by bombing our embassy.

"Of course we retaliated by bombing innocent chemical plants, as well as people in Afghanistan that had nothing to do with it!

"So where are we now?

"We're back to supporting and working hard and just deliberating over, 'should we give weapons to the KLA?'

"I mean the whole thing is absurd!

"There's only one thing that we should do. And that is stop this funding, and stop the war! You say 'oh no, we're already too far in, you can't. It's not supporting the troops.

"Well, who wants to come down here and challenge me and say that I don't support our troops? I support our troops, I've served in the military for five years. That is not a worthwihile challenge. We all support our troops.

"You say "NO, they're in a quagmire, and we have to help them, and this is the only way we can do it!"

"So the president comes and asks us for six billion dollars!!

"And in congress' infinite wisdom, we give him thirteen!!

"And yet we don't declare war!

"This appropriation should be defeated."

[Walks off stage, disgusted.]

(You can skip to 3:39 for the bin Laden part, but the whole thing is great.)
