During an interview with FOX Business, former Rep. Ron Paul explained that he was concerned about the well-being of National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden.
Im 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 dont even have rights and that they can be killed, but the gentlemen is trying to tell the truth about whats going on.
Paul added that there were no signs of Snowden defecting to a foreign country, which meant that he was not really a threat.....

special tips on umbrellas might also be a problem for Mr. Snowden....
These are not the drones you are looking for.
His tin foil cap is getting so tight that it is cutting of all oxygen from getting to the little brain he has left.
He may be a loon on some issues but this time I’m not laughing. I don’t put anything past obama. If he turns up dead under any circumstances we need look no further than obama. People are dropping like flies since he entered the WH.
I’m more worried that people will take the Paul’s seriously.
And that would definitely be murder.
I wish they would just roll out what all Snowden has, instead of the drip, drip.
Let’s compile a list of Traitors currently active in Fed. Gov’t and see where Snowden ranks.
But all three branches of government would agree, so it's OK!
Do I need a sarc tag?
It’s unlikely they would use a drone. However, that doesn’t mean the US government wouldn’t use a proxy to kill him or perform an assassination.
It would be a freak accident if he were to suddenly lose his hair and die of thallium poisoning, but it’s been known to happen.
in the old days traitors were shot...would not mind seeing the practice revived..lot cheaper than a drone
If you were alive during the revolution, you’d probably consider George Washington a traitor as well.
Our government is tyrannical. They need to be exposed. Snowden is a hero.
Why get fancy or subtle? A silenced .22 pistol has been the go-to method for almost 100 years now.
So the shooting would start in DC, correct??
Sounds about right.
I have a buck on him being a drug addict and they find him with the needle still in his arm.
Really? You mean obama has never, ever had any Americans killed who he even considers to be enemies? Never?
But I believe ‘silencers’ in this country are illegal, no??......:)
George Washington did run away and hide in China.
You sure know your US history!
Yeah, because the people who do that follow all the rules. BTW, it is said that George Barris (The Gong Show) and Steven Segal both used to do that for a living.
Arthur Darvill, from "Once, the Musical" and, of course, "Doctor Who".
To be fair, General Washington had an army at his back. Where is Mr. Snowden’s army?
More likely he’ll get a Breitbart nite-cap...
I think he’s worried about that too Ron. Thats why he disappeared. Good idea.
Keep drinking the Obamao/MSM/DiFi/Maxine Waters/Boner kool aid. Any American who still cares about freedom recognizes PRISM is a massive violation of the 4th amendment.
Usually Id say that Ron Paul is the whackiest of whack jobs but in this case, considering how bad Snowden makes Obama look and there are people out there that are willing to do anything to protect Obama, I wouldnt be surprised if Snowden gets taken out, not by a drone, but killed by some other means, it might already have been done
Whether it comes by a button being pushed or a phone call being made, if he is what he says he is, he'll be disappeared and the person who wants that done won't get their hands dirty making it happen.
It's primitive, to be sure. Maybe in a few years, they won't need drones. They'll just drop a tungsten rod from space. But for now, tyranny is as tyranny does and will have to make do with what is available.
I’m concerned that they will NOT take him seriously. This is not a joke and could very likely happen. We’ve stepped into a political sci-fi novel.
So I guess a few ‘silencers’ here, a ‘little’ 4th Amendment violation there, an occasional US citizen assassination without due process wherever, it’s all good cuz the ends justifies the means. The system has been corrupted. Those in power ignore laws. Why ANYONE still obeys any law is a wonderment....
Sorry, I do take it seriously...in like NDAA “belligerent” act seriously...
This is where the NDAA of 2012 comes back to haunt us. Well, under the NDAA all it takes is to commit a belligerent act. Who defines what that is? The President of the United States. http://www.belligerentact.org/
Congress is taking up the issue of Snowden today. Will he be deemed a whistleblower or traitor. Feinstein has already tipped their hand. The argument is if by revealing what the NSA is doing did Snowden commit a belligerent act? Did he compromise the security of the United States? If the President says he did...then he is an enemy of the state and subject to the provisions under the NDAA.
Okay, so exposing the fact that the NSA is doing domestic spying is traitorous?
Please explain how Snowden is "aiding and abetting" the enemy?Or, did you mean use the drones on D.C.?
As I see it, the evil left and the GOP-e are the true enemies of our beloved Constitution.
He has been proven right more times than not.
“Disappeared” being the operative word. Isn’t there a tape someone made of a couple of NSA guys saying, “he needs to be disappeared”?
Isn’t that what drones are for?
He was hired by the NSA and given access to information and national security secrets that folks far above his pay grade have deemed to be in our national security to be keep secret.
He violated that trust he is a traitor pure and simple.
Yes if the Constitution means anything.
I don’t agree with ANYONE all the time...so I certainly take issues with some of Dr. Paul’s stands...but on this I agree. I do NOT think Dr. Paul would make such a statement if he was not concerned for Snowden’s safety. We NEED more pols (current and former) to do the same heavy lifting that Ron Paul just did. It is REPREHENSIBLE that Boehner once again aligned himself with the very Administration BREAKING the boundaries of the Fourth Amendment, and JUST THE MILLIONS WHOSE DATA WAS CAPTURED, NOT GRANTING SNOWDEN DUE PROCESS!!!
G-d help us all!!!
Sorry. Snowden is a traitor just like Manning, though perhaps not as bad as Manning... Inasmuch as he seems to have exaggerated both his own résumé and the capabilities the government was supposed to have.
I’m saying tuned a bit more before I flip the switch. This Snowden guy gives me the creeps. Heroes don’t run to China to do their thing. There’s still nothing-— nothing-— in his allegations that even appears to be illegal.
I’m still waiting on this... I’m not sold.
Way to trivialize the surveillance of conservatives, CINO.
LOL you are beyond naive. The evil left has turned the NSA towards domestic spying. I am sure it's the tip of the ice berg on just what evils humans in our government are undertaking at the direction of the Obama and his Marxist cohorts.
If you have a chance, please listen to Levin's opening of his show tonight. Levin clearly explains how unconstitutional it is for the NSA to be turned towards domestic spying.
Snowden has done Liberty a valuable service by bringing to light the evils of this regime.
P.S. The simple fact that most in D.C. are calling him a traitor convinces me that Snowden the the proper and honorable thing.
Gee, ya think? I'm saying a prayer every night for Edward Snowden. John Bolton may disagree, but this man is a hero.
He violated that trust he is a traitor pure and simple.
methinks we might have dueling traitors..who lied and betrayed US first? Is it traitorous to unmask a traitor by the only means possible? If we had a fair and just government I might agree with you, but in the course of human events....which I think we are nearing at breakneck speed from an out of control government sometimes options are limited. What happened to fast and furious? Benghazi? IRS? Reporters records being taken under false pretenses? who has gone to jail or even been reprimanded and not promoted?
Naive doesn't even tell half the story.
yes his actions need to be tried in the context of everything happening now in our country not as a separate act..but as a response.
