Glenn says Edward was able to do this all by himself

and his point is well taken, that Snowden was able to trigger a sea change in our understanding and our debate about internet privacy, etc.

But I didn't see anyone from the the Washington Post showing up on every news show and making the point that these revelations are very important. Even though they also were recipients of the leaked material.

Glenn has been the face of this discussion from almost the very beginning. He has tirelessly, articulately, steadfastly, resolutely thoroughly turned Snowden's material into rock-solid arguments against the state spying apparatus, more than any other 10 people we could name put together.

Without Greenwald's herculean efforts, this whole thing would have gone down the memory hole very quickly. Bravo to both of them.

I'm voting for Peace.

No GG video would be complete

Without his dogs barking in the background!

Now it's self congratulating

Because America has been in a war on drugs for 4 decades and no one ever heard of a narc, or phone tapping, or private investigations, or saw cameras or pictures from security cameras, and as huffpo requests users all use their own name, and drivers licenses and plastic money have rfids, and facebook, youtube, google, your car and it's gps.. none of this tracks anyone.. no one knew.. maybe everyone was too high , eh? What war on drugs? Who knew any of this.. not us..

Much earned award, and hopefully snowden will return the favor and give GG one too for bravest journalist ever!. And David Miranda.. for the hero of the year at airports facing the Heathrow Airpost Heathens alone! (since snowden just sat in an airport in the same clothes for 6 weeks). something besides rumors of war and saber rattling to think about. Anyone still waiting for the big secret from these guys?


Is awesome.

Snowden is even more awesome
