Ron Paul defends Wikileaks on House Floor

Congressman Ron Paul addressed the house about Wikileaks. He stated that the attack on Julian Assange is like killing the messenger for bringing bad news and gave them nine questions to consider:

Number 1: Do the America People deserve know the truth regarding the ongoing wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen?

Number 2: Could a larger question be how can an army private access so much secret information?

Number 3: Why is the hostility directed at Assange, the publisher, and not at our governments failure to protect classified information?

Number 4: Are we getting our moneys worth of the 80 Billion dollars per year spent on intelligence gathering?

Number 5: Which has resulted in the greatest number of deaths: lying us into war or Wikileaks revelations or the release of the Pentagon Papers?

Number 6: If Assange can be convicted of a crime for publishing information that he did not steal, what does this say about the future of the first amendment and the independence of the internet?

Number 7: Could it be that the real reason for the near universal attacks on Wikileaks is moreĀ  about secretly maintaining a seriously flawed foreign policy of empire than it is about national security?

Number 8: Is there not a huge difference between releasing secret information to help the enemy in a time of declared war, which is treason, and the releasing of information to expose our government lies that promote secret wars, death and corruption?

Number 9: Was it not once considered patriotic to stand up to our government when it is wrong?

Thomas Jefferson had it right when he advised ‘Let the eyes of vigilance never be closed’

“Some Questions To Consider” Ron Paul Defends WikiLeaks “Killing The Messenger For Bad News”


  1. Ron Paul is really a Libertarian – just do a little research – who happens to be in the republican party.

    Big points to him for making these points about wikileaks.

  2. He is a truly conservative republican, not a neo-con. But he has ran on the Libertarian ticket in the past. For the good he could do for this country, I hope he never becomes president. He would be assassinated before inauguration.

  3. Patriots like Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich. Those two need to run together, KILL the Federal Reserve, IRS, and Bilderberg!!!! Let’s Take Our Country Back!!!

  4. Dennis Kucinich said if he got the nomination he would pick Paul as his running mate. He said that an eagle needs a right wing and a left wing to fly.

  5. How can you think that where our country is right now is where it needs to be?? I really, REALLY hope you don’t think we need to move “forward” from where we are now
