The article looks at the highlights of U.S. presidential candidate Ron Paul's campaign in Meredith, New Hampshire. A former New York City police officer who had been a September 11, 2001 first responder asked Paul about his foreign policy agenda. According to Paul, he supports the idea of giving the president authority to pursue individuals responsible for the September 11 attacks but he opposed the way in which the authority was used. He described his own approach to engaging with the world.
