Former Texas congressman and presidential aspirant Ron Paul took to Twitter and Facebook on the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist strikes to declare that America brought the attacks upon itself.

"We're supposed to believe that the perpetrators of 9/11 hated us for our freedom and goodness," Paul posted.

"In fact, that crime was blowback for decades of US intervention in the Middle East. And the last thing we needed was the government's response: more wars, a stepped-up police and surveillance state, and drones."

By Wednesday night, the Facebook post had more than 27,000 "likes."

Attached to the post was a picture of an American flag at half mast with the words "Never Forget. September 11, 2001."

On his Twitter account, Paul similarly noted:



The posting had 1,226 "retweets."

Paul is known for his libertarian ideology and opposition to U.S. military action abroad, saying last week it would be "historic" if Congress voted against President Obama’s plan for military strikes in Syria, Politico reported.

His son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, has also been a vocal opponent of U.S. action in Syria following the Assad regime’s alleged use of chemical weapons.
