What did Edward Snowden do... really?



Really... all he did was this:



There are so many lines from The Matrix that could apply:

quote:

The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work... when you go to church... when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
quote:

That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.

He divulged classified information to a foreign government. That is treason and should be met with a quick execution.

re: What did Edward Snowden do... really?


This is a better quote about our situation from the movie," The Dictator".

Imagine if America was a dictatorship. You could let 1 percent of the people have all the nation’s wealth. You could help your rich friends get richer by cutting their taxes and bailing them out when they gamble and lose. You could ignore the needs of the poor for health care and education. Your media would appear free, but would secretly be controlled by one person and his family. You could wiretap phones. You could torture foreign prisoners. You could have rigged elections. You could lie about why you go to war. You could fill your prisons with one particular racial group, and no one would complain. You could use the media to scare the people into supporting policies that are against their interests.

My opinion of Obama is neither here nor there as it pertains to this subject. Snowden committed treason. It is that simple.

How do you feel about this? TREASON: Biden and Panetta Must Be Charged As SEAL Team Families Cry Out For Justice

An important question is looming over the tragic event known as “Extortion 17”.

When will treason charges be brought against those who betrayed our warriors and their families?

There are two perpetrators in this tragedy. Vice President Joe Biden, who personally exposed the Navy SEALs as the ones who eliminated Osama bin Laden, recklessly and publicly on two occasions, is the first. The second is former CIA Director Leon Panetta, who revealed CLASSIFIED intel to a Hollywood screenwriter, naming the unit and revealing the ground Commander personally by name. Apparently, the American public has not recognized these acts for what they are, or more people than just the families of the fallen SEALs would be demanding justice, and they should be.

Proof???

NOTHING indicates that he has done anything but spoken with the reporter and told him the extent of the programs spying.

Like I said, if it comes out that he shared Military secrets with a foreign govt that endangers the lives of people, then he should be prosecuted.

But nothing has shown this is the case.

Question : Is there a difference between sharing secrets with a foreign government directly and exposing said secrets publicly, thereby making them available to all foreign governments ?

He told terrorists that we have the Internet/world communications network bugged so now they're going to get around it by using soup cans and yarn!

If you disclose publicly that the gov is spying on its citizens how is that treason? How is that (esp this revelation) valuable to the enemy? They know and the gov knows.

Further, I think it's "treasonous" that our gov is secretly stealing our info and communications.
