He disapproved of the European intervention in the Libyan civil war and warned against an intervention in Syria. In the aftermath of the Death of Osama bin Laden, he sent a letter to President Barack Obama suggesting the United States killed rather than tried bin Laden because he may have revealed unsettling information about 9/11. He argued, "You know that there are people who have investigated the tragic events of 9/11/2001 and claim there is evidence that this was a self-coup (self-inflicted attack)." Later, he added, "This event was the perfect excuse to launch a war against Afghanistan and Iraq and now against Libya." Finally, he called the United States an "axis of evil"."
