Former representative Ron Paul explained recently in interview with FOX Business, that he was seriously concerned for the well-being of National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden.

“I’m worried about somebody in our government might kill him with a cruise missile or a drone missile,” Paul explained. “I mean we live in a bad time where American citizens don’t even have rights and that they can be killed, but the gentlemen is trying to tell the truth about what’s going on.”

If Paul is right, Snowden would be the fifth US citizen assassinated by the Obama administration by drone strikes, without due process.

Paul added that there were no signs of the NSA whistlerblower defecting to a foreign country, which meant that he was not really a threat.

“It’s a shame that we are in an age where people who tell the truth about what the government is doing gets into trouble,” Paul concluded.

As an Illinois senator, Obama was responsible for passing legislation to protect government employees who come forward and risk their jobs to expose waste, corruption and national security lapses. And during his 2008 election campaign, Obama promised to protect whistleblowers, saying their “acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled.”

But since in office, the president has proven unwilling to stand by those who blow the whistle on illegal government activity. It seems that corruption is bad as long as it is the other guy doing it. When it is the White House, the NSA or the military, then you have to keep quiet, even when witnessing clearly illegal activity.
