Thank you for sharing that. It took a bit to read the entire article but I'm glad I did. Seldom have I read about a braver man than we see right
there. He has my 100% and total, unqualified respect. Support? Remains to be seen on a couple factors I'm leaving alone for now...but respect?
He's come out, stood next to what he's done and is ready to take whatever comes from it. Long before the hounds were on his heels and they'd hunted
him to ground. That shows a level of courage I think few in this world still possess.
He also made the very clear and very important distinction about exposing the system and not hurting people. That means everything, to my thinking. I
have no doubt a man in his position 'knows where bodies are buried', so to speak and could burn a great number of operations and programs still
ongoing, which would burn the people in them or see them killed in short order. That demands respect. It also tells me he's doing this for the reasons
he claims and not bitterness or some personal axe to grind. He'd document dump everything he could if that were the case...like others have.
I just hope what he's done and what he's about to suffer for doing it isn't all in vain. I do so very much hope what he's done in essentially ending
his useful and productive life brings change through knowledge of what we couldn't have otherwise known. The worst crime here would be for his
sacrifice to be for nothing.
That's my feeling on the new leaker and what he's done.
