NATURAL NEWS. Former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas has launched a new website that he says aims to promote more whistleblowing by government employees and serve as a sounding board that grabs the attention of politicians and policymakers.
I tell you what has helped us a whole lot and that is something that we can encourage, and that is to get more whistleblowers, ” the libertarian-leaning Paul, also a three-time presidential candidate, said. ”Think of Edward Snowden, what he has done for revealing the truth. Think of what Daniel Ellsberg did in a much more difficult time and he narrowly escaped going to prison for this.
Snowden, the former NSA contractor who divulged top-secret information showing how his former agency spied on millions of Americans and citizens of allied countries, is currently a fugitive in Russia; Ellsberg famously revealed the Pentagon Papers in the 1970s, which revealed secret U.S. operations in Vietnam and the neighboring countries of Laos and Cambodia.
