'US govt equates American people to enemy when it hides troops' whereabouts' - Ron Paul

'US govt equates American people to enemy when it hides troops' whereabouts' - Ron Paul | 12 Dec 2017 | The Pentagon listing the location of some 44,000 military personnel as "unknown," while citing secrecy reasons to protect them from the "enemy," effectively means that the US public falls into that category, former US Congressman Ron Paul told RT. Lack of accountability on the whereabouts of the US troops was not very surprising, Paul believes, as it had become a "routine thing" over the past years...Apart from the Constitution, there's the War Powers Resolution, adopted after the Vietnam War clearly states that the US government "must report where the troops are," Paul added. Despite that, the locations of some 44,000 of troops were simply reported as "unknown."

HPSCI staff confirmed to Fox News that she was paid by Fusion GPS through the summer and fall of 2016. Fusion GPS has attracted scrutiny because Republican lawmakers have spent the better part of this year investigating whether the dossier, which was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, served as the basis for the Justice Department and the FBI to obtain FISA surveillance last year on a Trump campaign adviser named Carter Page.
