Lindsey Graham on tracking down Snowden, censoring postal mail and donating to Ron Paul

Sen.Lindsey Graham (R-SC), as usual, has been a source of all sorts of imaginable quotes on national security, surveillance and private political donations in recent days.

Not only does the senior Senator from South Carolina question whether bloggers deserve first amendment protections and is “glad” the NSA is snooping in phone records, Graham says snail mail could be targeted if necessary.

In a Yahoo News report Tuesday, Graham said he would censor mail like it was during WWII, In World War II, the mentality of the public was that our whole way of life was at risk, we’re all in. We censored the mail. When you wrote a letter overseas, it got censored. When a letter was written back from the battlefield to home, they looked at what was in the letter to make sure they were not tipping off the enemy,” Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told reporters on Capitol Hill. “If I thought censoring the mail was necessary, I would suggest it, but I don’t think it is.”

Concerning “whistleblower” Edward Snowden, Sen. Graham tweeted Monday after calling him a felon,”I hope we follow Mr. Snowden to the ends of the earth to bring him to justice.”

When asked whether donating to Ron Paul was an issue with Graham, which Snowden is reported as doing. Graham said, “No, no. I think people that give donations to Ron Paul are exercising their right to participate in the political process. Ron Paul isn’t a threat to America. His policies are.”
