NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden to Hold Q&A Thursday

Posted on January 23, 2014

Edward Snowden is expected to offer his opinion of President Obama’s NSA reforms during a Webcast question-and-answer session on Thursday.

It will be Snowden’s first live chat since he began releasing classified internal documents last June that revealed the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs, according to FreeSnowden.is, the support site hosting the hour-long Q&A. Snowden, who is currently living in exile in Russia, was charged with espionage after reportedly stealing 1.7 million classified documents from US government computers.

  3. I sincerely hope Snowden doesn't buckle to an offer to plead guilty to anything, given the gross government approval of NSA to spy (no other word for it) on Americans (which the Congressional oversight agency now flatly brands "unconsitutional"), compounded by a contemporaneous and utterly transparent attempt to smear his motives with "suspicion" about having worked for the Russians (with absolutely zero evidence offered to back that extreme suggestion). On account of how he isn't smart enough to have done this all on his own.

    My suggestion is that he take the opportunity to learn Russian and live out his life in peace, knowing he's done his country (if not his government) a valuable service. Hopefully what he's exposed will also reaffirm in the public mind what the Founders profoundly believed: a fool and his liberty are soon parted by government machinations.

  4. Well said

  5. If Snowden ever comes back to this country and turns himself in to US authorities, the next thing you'll hear on the news is he became "very depressed" and "committed suicide".
