According to Snowden he has info on lots of people in the CIA and NSA that are out on the field, I'm starting to wonder if he isn't going to reveal who they are and screw them over.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/16/uk-spies-hacked-diplomats-phones-emails_n_3451680.html Hey Snowden, I think you can stop leaking information now at some point because you are really going beyond the whole "protecting civilians thing and kinda just going in the screwing up international politics thing".
This just in: Spy agencies spy on people.
All these spying stories is why I am happy that the internet is not some government owned utility. If the government owned it would we have any protection or privacy on the net?
Because, y'know, the government really cares about what I post to Reddit.
...Snowden himself is I think the most interesting part of this because he’s a so-called Millennial. His ethics and allegiances are not those of his father or grandfather and certainly not those of the politicians and intelligence leaders he’d love to bring down. So the old rules, old threats, and old reward structures don’t work with this guy, making him even more dangerous.I think that’s good. In fact I think it’s the system re-regulating itself. We created Edward Snowden by disappointing him so. Our leaders, representing the old culture even as they presented themselves as representing the new, gave him no morally acceptable way to be successful in his own culture. We made him do what he is doing now. And if you think that’s bullshit I suggest you think again because this guy has been very clear about his motivation.A mighty storm is blowing on Snowden and I don’t think we’ve seen all of it yet.
Google's fighting, at least a bit. Since they're in California, will it go through the 9th circuit? Please say yes please say yes
Snowden may very well be treasonous, but I would hope more people would be willing to do the things he's done, during ANY administration.
He comes off as the kind of dick that anyone from our generation does when we confront those in power above us. ;^)
Media grandstanding is the most powerful tool he has. It protects him from disappearance or assassination. It also is the only way to generate outrage and interest.If he lets the documents speak for themselves, almost no one cares.
He knows the moment he slips from the public eye he's a dead man. He's just grasping onto life as long as he can before he gets drone'd.Were I him, I'd hire somebody to kill me in a very obvious and public way in a crowded street. I'm a dead man walking anyway; I may as well do everything I can to damage the reputation of US intelligence agencies.
