Ron Paul WikiLeaks

Republican Congressman and one-time Presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas defended WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on the Fox Business channel Thursday.

"In a free society we're supposed to know the truth," Paul said. "In a society where truth becomes treason, then we're in big trouble. And now, people who are revealing the truth are getting into trouble for it."

“This whole notion that Assange, who's an Australian, that we want to prosecute him for treason. I mean, aren't they jumping to a wild conclusion?” he added. “This is media, isn't it? I mean, why don't we prosecute The New York Times or anybody that releases this?"

WikiLeaks is an international non-profit media organization that publishes submissions of otherwise unavailable documents from anonymous news sources and leaks.

Assange came under fire this week for releasing a series of United States diplomatic cables.  While some considered a number of the releases embarrassing, others suggested the WikiLeaks site had placed US national security at risk.    

Some in Congress have gone as far as to suggest Assange is a terrorist (i.e. Peter King of New York)

Paul has long been a strong opponent of personal freedoms including one’s right to gamble on the Internet.  He co-sponsored a bill with Democrat Barney Frank to legalize and regulate online gambling.
