He's a good man but I fear it will make little difference in the long run.

Even if this hit the news continuously people tend to forget about these sorts of things just as fast.

It's a real shame.

Because I have seen his face a couple of time in the newspaper but never really read about it.

His name is Edward Snowden. He basically just told us all what the conspiracy nuts have believed for decades. The US, (Via a program called PRISM) will be tracking and cataloging every phone number, and IP address that you ever contact ever. It steps all over the toes of a lot of the constitution. But don't worry, it's prevented 50 terrorist attacks so far. They can't give any particulars on the events, but they were totally going to happen. They promise.

I cant believe a site like this would glorify a man like that. he told CHINA, you know the country that is basically decide if we go to war with north Korea and start the next world war! yeah he told them that we were doing digital surveillance in their country. What he did is not made up for by releasing the nsa documents, i do admit that we needed to know that but this man took it way to far and you all should understand that. he needs to be locked up for treason and endangering the people.

He didn't tell China, he fled there.
He told the internet.
Even China said to leave because they were willing to extradite him.

Why are people acting like this NSA monitoring is new? This started back when the Patriot Act was first passed after 9/11 (which I protested, though nobody gave a **** since they were scared and wanted to gubment to save them from the Arabs) and the illegal monitoring is nothing new. Although the CIA did it for decades illegally, it's now entirely legal due to the Patriot Act and has been occurring regularly and with increasing frequency for over a decade now with the government making zero effort to hide what they are doing, so why does everybody act like this is new news when it's very old news? Everybody wanted to be safe so they were willing to sacrifice their liberty in return for security after 9/11, and now everybody seems to have forgotten about the implicit contract that they agreed to. The average American citizen wanted this, it's time for them to reap what they sowed.

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." -Benjamin Franklin

Snowden (man shown above) worked for the NSA, or at least one of it's corporate subsidiaries.
He found out that the government was spying on the people, he had thousands of documents that he could have uploaded, but chose only the ones that would do the least damage, the ones he released were simply generic ones detailing how the government tracks phone calls, internet activity, etc. instead of revealing how the government tracks gun populations, who has relatives over-seas who could be exploited, etc.

After this he fled to Hong Kong but has since left since they said they would extradite him.

So there are 2 sides, basically those who think he is a traitor for revealing this information and those who think he is a loyalist because he released it.
It depends on if you believe that your loyalty should be given to the government or to the people.

Ok, for people who complain about him leaving for china and calling him chinese agent.
Its ******** . He left for Hong Kong, which is chinese but has a really high degree of autonomy. Unlike rest of china, Hong Kong was under british rule till very recently and has certain aspects of british culture, such as human rights record.
And reason why he picked Hong Kong is simple. List of countries that offer jobs in his sector, are first world countries and have no extradiction treaty with usa is pretty much just China.

Who is this guy and what did he say?
User avatar #221 to #216 - repostforlife (06/20/2013) [-]
he is the guy who told everyone that the NSA was keeping records on everything they said, phone logs and internet history meaning they invaded your privacy without your approval

maybe he's a very patriotic guy who wanted to poke the gov't or maybe he's a chinese spy I'm not sure but the fact that he's hiding in Hong Kong doesn't help his case if he's looking for a country without extradition Costa Rica seems like a much better choice

I wouldn't call it true love of country, although I do think it was pretty heroic. Doing the right thing even thought it cost him everything.
