This past Sunday evening former NSA contractor Edward Snowden sat down for an interview with German television network ARD. The interview has been intentionally blocked from the US public, with virtually no major broadcast news outlets covering this story. In addition, the video has been taken down almost immediately every time itís posted on YouTube.
In contrast, this was treated as a major political event in both print and broadcast media, in Germany, and across much of the world. In the interview, Mr. Snowden lays out a succinct case as to how these domestic surveillance programs undermines and erodes human rights and democratic freedom.
The 30-minute interview with Edward Snowden can be found in the following link:
thatís no surprise to me. allot of people i know do like him for what he did. but yet those same people get made when FB, Goog, ms or apple implements something people donít like. you cant be for one thing and not against another.
i actually understand why some Americans and people around the world have got a problem with him.
he call out the US government on stuff that needed to be called out.
to me he is a alright , not a traitor like the gov is making him out to be.... we need more people like him in every corporation and each nation and around the world. would keep governments in check where they should be.
i find it sad and funny at the same time taxes are paying a government agency to build and perform functions that weren't ever disclosed to the people paying.
bottom line is calling out the government isn't going to change what they are doing.
calling him out and not giving him air time means the most people here will forget who he is and will soon be relevant to them. thatís of course another Snowden comes out of the shadows.
