I know there are a lot of these stories on Ron's interviews this week, but I like them and the imagery in this one.
more and video coverage at link: http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/Ken...medium=twitterRon Paul, a lion of the libertarian movement, is roaring again. He is praising Edward Snowden, the admitted leaker of information about a vast U.S. government surveillance program that is generating headlines around the world.
"We should be thankful for individuals like Edward Snowden and [investigative reporter] Glenn Greenwald, who see injustice being carried out by their own government and speak out, despite the risk," Paul said in remarks posted on campaignforliberty.org, the website of an advocacy group that Paul leads.
"They have done a great service to the American people by exposing the truth about what our government is doing in secret."
Others express a harshly negative view of Snowden, the central figure in the ongoing leaks case who has been condemned for jeopardizing national security.
But Paul said, "The government does not need to know more about what we are doing. We need to know more about what the government is doing."
"The Fourth Amendment is clear," added Paul, a former U.S. representative from Texas. "We should be secure in our persons, houses, papers, and effects, and all warrants must have probable cause. Today the government operates largely in secret, while seeking to know everything about our private lives – without probable cause and without a warrant."
