Conservative leader Gary Bauer warns of the dangers of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul in the latest Emergency Committee for Israel ad:

"Ron Paul's conservatism is isolationist and conspiratorial," Bauer says. "He's hostile to our military, hostile to our allies like Israel, and was hostile to great conservatives like Ronald Reagan. He denies that Iran is building nuclear weapons. He says it was a crime to kill Osama bin Laden. He blames America for creating terrorism. He says we don't know the truth about the 9/11 attacks because of a government cover-up. He condemns our ally Israel for defending herself. Ron Paul is not a Reagan Republican. We can do better."

Bauer is a former Reagan administration official and an ECI board member.
