Snowden can end all this snooping for us easily. Simple post for the world to see all the records of Democrats, Republicans and numerous TV and Movie personalities. They will get a taste of thier own medicine.
Like many others before me I applaud the Germans for their obvious choice. It's a great symbolic gesture! Then I quicky calculate that Mr. Snowden used to make as much money in a week on his old job. And I realize how grossly underfunded the side of liberty is now in the world versus the oppression aparatus. How very worrisome this is!
Well this is good news. I keep reading about moves against websites and people like Snowden and the NSA's scary capabilities on vpnexpress .net. It's nice to read about people standing up for Snowden for a change.
He's keeping rogue regimes in check, including our own.
When will Mr Snowden get his Nobel Peace Prize? He has earned it more than Obama ever did.
Obama has done more damage to america than this kid. When are we going to toss him in jail?
Snowden is preaching freedom from surveillance ... in Russia. He may not be in jail, but he is surely in [the hot place -- thank you, Russian censors].
Snowden is just made up by the west to keep people busy cause the west is fighting a war vs my people and use all kind of extrimism like using some religions or nationalism to destroy everything in there way to these gas/oil fields and the people who suffer are the one´s who don´t like this and are ready to build bridge´s.
the west don´t want to wait for this and rather use violence to get to there goal but they lost this as you can see in Syria.The only way to end voilence is build bridges between humans.For that you need a bit of humanism and a bit of socialisme and a bit liberalisme.This won´t happen...
As it should be.
HE SHOULD BE IN FRONT OF FIRING SQAUD. HE IS A TRAITOR
Edward Snowden, by any account and by any comparision, is a world icon of conscience. He alone has challenged the world most powerful state . He deserves not only our words of praise but our actions to join him in any way we can.
I myself owe him and Sarah Harrison a salute. I don't expect he is a superman or a matyr. He's done his share of our common Liberty more than enough already. Whatever he's going to from now on is an extra.
Thank you Edward Snowden
Thank you Sarah Harrison
