An intelligent, thoughtful, non-reactionary, ethical man is vilified from a socialised mob-rule world view. Hmmm…. let’s think if their are any historical precedents?
Lock up the truth tellers… Mandela, Aung San Suu Kyi, Ghandi… better still… kill them.
I am always amazed at the simplistic view of the world people have. The Internet provided a simple way for spies, terrorists and criminals to communicate and coordinate their activities. 911 was an example of how they used it. We asked the Government to protect us and they figured out a way to identify the underground networks of those trying to harm us Snowden did cost us hundreds of millions of dollars and he did commit an act of treason.History and the law will judge Snowden. Remember, the Internet is public. Anything you put on line is in the public domain and expecting privacy is a pipe dream. I am sure the US government isn’t the only one doing this kind of thing.
It reminds me of what we did to Russia in Afghanistan.
Oh. And when was the last time we could trust the US government? Some time before Richard Nixon? A long time…
Mr. Snowden deserves the Medal of Freedom and the gratitude of a country to which democracy has been restored. Be nice to live in one like that.
“A new kind of terrorist – the whistle blower! What’s wrong with this picture?”What’s wrong is that some people actually think a whistle blower is a terrorist.
When did gocomics start screening who can see what posts?
Yes, Snowden ran to Russia because they are known for their civil rights there…
Ill bet that by the time Snowden is thrown out of Russia, he’ll have been squeezed dry like an old sponge… ;)
