What is Ron Paul's stance on members of the military who report what appears to be a war crime?

Private First Class Bradley Manning.
Does the name ring a bell for you?
This young man is charged by the Army with giving a classified video to Wikileaks. The video shows what appears to be a war crime, an attack on unarmed civilians.

Does Ron Paul agree that, if Bradley Manning did release the video, he should be prosecuted for doing that, or should he be given a medal for acting in accord with standards that the U.S. and our Allies established at Nuremberg in 1946?

Let me give you here a sense of where the case is at today; then I'll give you the link where you can go for the rest of the story.

Events in the Washington DC area and internationally in support of accused WikiLeaks whistle-blower

Nobel Peace Prize nominee Bradley Manning’s next appearance in court will take place April 24-26 at Ft. Meade, MD. At the previous hearing on March 15th, Bradley’s lawyer filed a motion to dismiss all charges based on the government’s failure to present evidence as requested.

I ask that someone enlighten me as to how to have Ron Paul address this question.
Is there a forum or blog which he reads?
or an email address I can use?
