Edward Snowden by Albert

The individual responsible for one of the most significant leaks in US political history is Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. Snowden has been working at the National Security Agency for the last four years as an employee of various outside contractors, including Booz Allen and Dell.

The Guardian, after several days of interviews, is revealing his identity at his request. From the moment he decided to disclose numerous top-secret documents to the public, he was determined not to opt for the protection of anonymity. “I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong,” he said.

Snowden will go down in history as one of America’s most consequential whistleblowers, alongside Daniel Ellsberg and Bradley Manning. He is responsible for handing over material from one of the world’s most secretive organisations – the NSA.

In a note accompanying the first set of documents he provided, he wrote: “I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions,” but “I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I love are revealed even for an instant.”

Despite his determination to be publicly unveiled, he repeatedly insisted that he wants to avoid the media spotlight. “I don’t want public attention because I don’t want the story to be about me. I want it to be about what the US government is doing.”

    I couldn’t believe they were talking a death sentence for his offense, but if he is caught it will be life. No wonder he’s not no.1 of the gov. favorite hit list.

  • I didn’t know they were talking of a death sentence. Anyhow I don’t think they ever catch him and he’s done us all a good deed. He’s a brave soul!

    Yes, because he’s a traitor in their eyes, but now it’s just a life sentence if he’s caught. I’m not sure if he’ll get amnesty in Japan or not, it’s a big city but he may not blend in too well there. I hope he never gets caught.

  • Here’s something you shouldn’t miss out on Viv……it’s by Renate Dartois called The Dove-whisperer which is a message of peace.

    Whispering in her ear something only she can hear
    She listens to this messenger of peace
    As he whispers to her of unrest and grieve
    The world is in trouble in so many ways
    So much discontent and violence
    So much discrimination and hate.
    Yes the world is in trouble in so many ways
    The good news is it is not yet to late
    So do not hesitate get started today
    The earth is your home make it a better place…..

    That’s beautiful Albert and so true. Why do we have to fight with everyone anyway? What’s wrong with peace and love?

    Yes they are, they are blessed, “Blessed are the peacemakers.”
