That sucks doesn't it? So Snowden just gave up this $250K job to go and live in Russia all for the CIA who by this time are a rich bunch of oligarchs' in their own right, that makes some sense. Besides the NSA and CIA and FBI and all the rest answer to the NCTC now.
So true its like its all part of the bigger plan ,make it look like they are against each other when really they work together, no matter who you vote for you still always vote for "them" because they are all in on it together,by making the people think they have the choice to vote it gives them a false sense of freedom.
It's funny how politicians spend all day throwing paper darts at the other parties, then get all huggy and kissy together when they see a common foe...in this case Snowden who has all the pictures of them with their trousers down.
No wonder fancy Nancy wants him home, probably to smother him with dollars to get him to STFU.
couldnt have said it better myself friend and you are right it is time for a revolution!
Sure, Snowden broke laws, but then so did the founding fathers. They would have been put to death had they tried to 'give themselves up" or 'turn themselves in' to face the public court and trial. Snowden is no different. What he did was heroic, what George Washington did was heroic. Talking about all the laws he broke and confidentiality agreements he broke is a smoke screen. The issue is what the NSA and other alphabet agencies are doing now and have been doing for years. Time to reign them in. Time to take back our freedom.
Again, I don't want him held accountable for blowing the whistle I just want him held accountable for what he did wrong.
Most importantly I want the Govt/NSA to change because of this.
We agree on that last point, but could you explain how he could have blown the whistle here without doing something wrong?
He broke laws that were designed to protect those on the top. If they weren't designed in that fashion,why are they so pissed off? For our sake? Don't insult my intelligence.
He did not break any 'law' What he did was to expose those who were already breaking the law under their given mandate, that makes anything he did outside the scope of 'classified' You cannot 'classify' something by a nod and a wink when acting illegally.
It also has nothing to do with a "nod and a wink".
