It's way too long to post here, but this is a link to an article about some old chat logs with Snowden talking about some other guy who leaked info, if anyone's interested.

When Snowden was granted a security clearance I'm sure he took an oath to protect and defend the material he was entrusted with. Nuf said.

So you're saying you'd rather not know the truth?

This is the problem with America/americans, ignorance is bliss.

This is not about me, it's about him and he is a traitor plain and simple. He should be dealt with accordingly.

Just because it is a law/rule doesn't mean it's right.

He's legally fucked, and even if he wasn't they'd still find a way to fuck him...... They dug up charges on Assange, I figure eventually he'll either disappear or be found dead of mysterious circumstances.

Legally what he did was wrong, morally what he did was right....... Government has no right to spy on everybody, its 1984 shit or what the KGB did not us.

KGB had no need to spy. The same can be said of Usa. The only reason we monitor facebook and phones is to justify the existance of bloated federal agencies.

lol ^


Did anybody catch the presidential plane of Bolivia being denied access to EU airpsace? The US feared he was going to be spirited away so they ordered EU countries to deny access to their airspace.

Now the South American countries are pissed off about this. Way to go USA, you now have a shitload of pissed off people on your side of the world outside of Cuba.

Statement from Edward Snowden in Moscow

Monday July 1, 21:40 UTC

One week ago I left Hong Kong after it became clear that my freedom and safety were under threat for revealing the truth. My continued liberty has been owed to the efforts of friends new and old, family, and others who I have never met and probably never will. I trusted them with my life and they returned that trust with a faith in me for which I will always be thankful.

On Thursday, President Obama declared before the world that he would not permit any diplomatic “wheeling and dealing” over my case. Yet now it is being reported that after promising not to do so, the President ordered his Vice President to pressure the leaders of nations from which I have requested protection to deny my asylum petitions.

This kind of deception from a world leader is not justice, and neither is the extralegal penalty of exile. These are the old, bad tools of political aggression. Their purpose is to frighten, not me, but those who would come after me.

For decades the United States of America has been one of the strongest defenders of the human right to seek asylum. Sadly, this right, laid out and voted for by the U.S. in Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is now being rejected by the current government of my country. The Obama administration has now adopted the strategy of using citizenship as a weapon. Although I am convicted of nothing, it has unilaterally revoked my passport, leaving me a stateless person. Without any judicial order, the administration now seeks to stop me exercising a basic right. A right that belongs to everybody. The right to seek asylum.

In the end the Obama administration is not afraid of whistleblowers like me, Bradley Manning or Thomas Drake. We are stateless, imprisoned, or powerless. No, the Obama administration is afraid of you. It is afraid of an informed, angry public demanding the constitutional government it was promised — and it should be.

I am unbowed in my convictions and impressed at the efforts taken by so many.

Edward Joseph Snowden

Monday 1st July 2013
