Supporting Whistleblowers Now 'Terrorist' Activity
August 19, 2013
Just being associated with somebody that criticizes mass surveillance programs can now get you detained in the United Kingdom. We recently saw this when David Miranda, who is apparently the lover of Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald, was detained by British police for nine hours at London’s Heathrow airport.
Greenwald is The Guardian reporter whom Edward Snowden turned his files on the NSA over to. The stories Greenwald has written about the files have embarrassed both the NSA and its British counterpart, the GCHQ. Now, authorities have apparently figured out a way to strike back and violate a man’s rights.
