Ron Paul has taken an unconventional line on Russia's alleged responsibility for supplying the missile launcher that crashed the Malaysian plane killing 298 passengers.
Paul's remarks were in response to Newsmax TV's John Bachman, who said that "there have been a lot of fingers pointed in Putin's direction for not directly being involved but being complicit with the fact that some of these weapons...they're Russian weapons."
Paul responded: "That may well be true, but guess what? ISIS has a lot of American weapons. We send weapons into Syria to help the rebels and if al Qaeda ends up getting it, it doesn't mean our American government and Obama deliberately wanted ISIS to get American weapons."
