Edward Snowden, Known Criminal, Actually a Hero?

Edward Snowden, Known Criminal, Actually a Hero?

The NSA was doing bad things, Snowden knew it even as a low-level contractor, and he blew the whistle. (In)conveniently, Obama has removed “protect whistleblower” from his website, but maybe this makes it all the more poignant.

Here’s this guy, stuck in limbo, knowing that he’s done his best to inform and advise the American and frankly the world public… yet he’s a wanted man.

Not a “wanted man” in the sense of “we have charges against you and we’d like to extradite you,” but rather in the “just send him to us and we’ll take care of him,” sort of deal… How’s that worked out for the folks at Gitmo?

Fact is, there are ZERO charges against Snowden, and he IS NOT being extradited back to the US. No, he’s just some random person of interest.

You know, like how it’s “interesting” that the US has been systematically harvesting all of our emails and phone call logs over the past ten years. That’s interesting, right?

Year end is coming up, and you can bet your ass Snowden is in my dead pool. There’s no value in killing him. His damage capacity has already been realized, but we have to send a message.

My best girlfriend Obama (whom I voted for twice and supported financially as many times,) has turned into a slightly less sweaty version of the uber paranoid Nixon, and he’s following the same tragectory.

First black president is great, but soory, commander in cheif, you’re giving first black president’s a bad name. You are not the guy I voted for or gave all that money to. You used to support the transparency that folks like Snowden bring to light, but now you just want to render them extraordinarily and… what is it exactly you do with non-charged, non-extradicted, non-convicted persons?

The cynic in me would say you “disappear” them, but saying such a crazy thing would surely put me on your list.
