“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… My sole motive is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them.” Edward Snowdan
Mr. Snowden received 2 nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize on January 29, 2014 in NORWAY!
Our American HERO, Edward Snowden, who was accused of compromising U.S. security; admitted that he wants to come back home to the USA. But he has one demand: “Don’t call me a traitor.” Earlier this year, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said that a plea deal with Snowden was a possibility.
According to an interview with the BBC’s ‘Parorama’ program, which aired Monday, Mr. Snowden; the former National Security Agency contractor who leaked documents about top secret mass surveillance programs proclaimed that he: “… would be willing to reach a plea bargain with U.S. authorities.”
He stated that he has offered to” return to the United States and face prison for leaking details of National Security Agency programs to intercept electronic communications data on a vast scale.” However, he is still waiting for a formal plea-deal offer.
Ironically, his critics say that his disclosures harmed the ability of the United States and its allies to fight terrorism. In fact, FBI deputy director Mark Giuliano told the BBC that Snowden was a traitor. As far as I am concerned, America is being governed by a bunch of Traitors, including Many in Congress and our so called President Barack Hussein Obama II (Whose real name is Barry Soetoro?)
“The question is, if I was a traitor, who did I betray?” Snowden asked. “I gave all of my information to American journalists and free society generally.”
“I regret I didn’t come forward sooner, because the longer you wait with programs like this, the more deeply entrenched they become,” “I have paid a price but I feel comfortable with the decisions I’ve made,” he added. “If I’m gone tomorrow, I’m happy with what I had. I feel blessed.”
The former NSA contractor fled to Moscow two years ago after revealing information about the previously secret eavesdropping powers. He faces U.S. charges that could land him in prison for up to 30 years, including Espionage and theft of government property, (secret classified data of its own citizens). His revelations about the NSA, Britain’s GCHQ and other intelligence agencies set off an “international debate about spies’ powers to monitor personal communications,” National Security? Bill of Rights —Privacy. Good Luck and GOD Bless—You, Edward Snowden!
“But you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing. It behooves you, therefore, to be watchful in your States as well as the Federal Government.” — Andrew Jackson, Farewell Address, March 4, 1837
