Edward Snowden, True American Hero

Edward Snowden delivered a Christmas Message via British channel 4. 

From RTNews:
NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden  has delivered his ‘Alternative Christmas Message’ via a British TV channel. The whistleblower called for an end to mass spying by governments, stating that a child born today will have "no conception of privacy."

Snowden’s address aired by the UK’s Channel 4 comes as an alternative to the Queen’s traditional Christmas speech, which is shown by the country’s other leading broadcasters.

Filmed in Russia, the address is the first TV appearance of the whistleblower since his arrival in the country, where he was granted temporary asylum in August.

The message starts with Snowden appealing to each and every family, warning them that the scope of government surveillance has gone to the extent that “a child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy at all”.....


  1. "...called for an end to mass spying by governments.."
    Never going to happen, just the fact he made such a fatuous statement shows he is a bit deranged. Even if the powers to be in the USA decide to be nice and follow his suggestion, we all know other governments never will governments such as Russia and China. Must be realistic. Earth to Snowden, get your head out of the clouds.

    1. In my opinion, he's done the right thing by his conscience. That's important for one's own peace of mind. What happens after that shouldn't be his concern.
