James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence who admitted lying to Congress and who called his boss the President "weak" in public is somehow still in office. So too is "Senator One Percent" Diane Feinstein (D-CA) the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee who wants to settle the NSA scandal by simply making legal all of the illegal shit that agency has been doing. What do you do when the guy you want to fire has files on the whole country -- including you?
I know what Harry Truman would do. Barack Obama needs to send out a search party of Marines to find his 'nads. Disgusting.
Meanwhile, Ed Snowden continues to suffer for 300 million people who would rather pay more attention to cat videos and football than to their sacred civil liberties. At least he just got nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for walking the walk, unlike the President, who won the Prize in 2009 for talking the talk.
Hmm, it's not only the people of the USA, he made the whole world aware about the disgusting behaviour of the NSA. I would give him asylum in my country, if I could. But you're right, too many are desinterested in civil liberties.
[sarcasm] What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty and all are equal under the law? [/sarcasm]
I think Snowden should return to face trial. With popular support on his side, and evidence that what he did was right and that the NSA has little to no impact on terrorism, hopefully he'll be found not guilty.
Popular opinion doesn't have that much effect on trials. Look at the not guilty verdict on George Zimmerman shooting Trayvon Martin. And the kind of charges planned against him, under the Espionage Act, don't even allow for certain kinds of defenses. His attorneys would not be allowed to make the argument that the NSA has little or no impact on terrorism.
That is all.
Very true, all politicians be paranoid.
Sweet. Love your descriptions! Everyone needs to get the Clap!
