In an exclusive interview with WND, Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul fired back at Newsweek for an article labeling the NAFTA Superhighway a baseless conspiracy theory.
“It’s the same old story,” Paul said. “If Newsweek can’t discredit the message, they have to discredit the messenger.”
The Newsweek article, by Gretel C. Kovach, keyed off an answer the Texas congressman gave during the Nov. 28 CNN presidential debate. A YouTube.com question asked him about a “conspiracy theory regarding the Council [on] Foreign Relations and some plan to merge the United States with Canada and Mexico.”
