Is this Edward Snowden's Latest Leak or someone just using his name?Submitted by meekandmild on Fri, 09/27/2013 - 21:13
Renegade National Security Agency analyst Edward Snowden has been praised as a heroic whistleblower who exposed illegal and immoral actions by the United States government.
Perhaps this was true at the beginning, such as when Snowden outlined the NSA's quasi-legal practice of scooping up telephone metadata of millions of Americans over Verizon's telecommunication lines .
But as time goes on, Snowden's leaks have increasingly related to international spying and other legitimate actions of the U.S. government, which he has neither legal nor moral justification for exposing.
Snowden's leaks include outing NSA foreign surveillance targets to the Brazilian government, the German government, the U.N., and even the Chinese government . Just this week reports came out that the NSA had targeted Indian diplomats for spying at their Embassy in D.C. and in New York City
