"Asked about the involvement

"Asked about the involvement of Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, both of which sent representatives to meet Snowden, Carney replied: "Those groups do important work. But Snowden is not a human rights activist or a dissident. He is accused of leaking classified information, has been charged with three felony counts, and should be returned to the United States, where he will be afforded full due process."

"Those groups do important work"

How can anybody trust a government as a whole, when you have individuals consistently lie, when their ACTIONS betray their WORDS.......if you do not know, neither have input on what your government does, then why the hell are YOU making that statement, no need for an answer, i know it, deniability, your "masters" putting you on under the bus so to speak, but hey, you must be getting something REALLY good for it,.......NO, oh, well im sure your just the exception......wait, so why the hell are you doing it, your country?! WHOSE COUNTRY!!!

It is a hard discussion

We do not want nuclear secrets to get in the hands of certain people but you must have the right to your privacy.

And THAT, is how easy it is

And THAT, is how easy it is to determine what should not be made public, in regards to government transparency.......at the end of the day, it is my opinion that our governments should not be in anything that they cant disclose, i know how flighty that is, but it is what it will take, if governments want to bring our nations together, they have to start understanding aspect like these, before they even attempt it, even so, i want us all, globally to do it on our own, you know, the lasting kind

At the end of the day, off topically, what tools do human beings have in their possition thanks to governments, directly, or indirectly......that is creating our divides in human ideals

Sorry, i dont mean to sound ......preachy

I like the way you think

It can happen.
