AP Article: Snowden: Mass Surveillance Making Us Less Safe

MOSCOW (AP) -- Former National Security Agency systems analyst Edward Snowden says surveillance programs used by the United States to tap into phone and Internet connections around the world are making people less safe.

In short video clips posted by the WikiLeaks website on Friday, Snowden said the NSA mass surveillance he revealed before fleeing to Russia "puts us at risk of coming into conflict with our own government."

Poor guy

looks worse for the wear I must say.

Just think Edward Snowden had a VERY comfortable life making around $200,000 in Hawaii with a girlfriend and no problems to speak of. He threw that all away.

Yet his opposition dares suggest he was motivated by money or helping other countries or US enemies.

just my thought

Our children and grand children need to know what Edward Snowden did for the US citizens and the rest of the world. It won't be in the gov't run school books. We have to tell them.

Edward Snowden already entered this country's posterity of honor

Be reassured. It won't be otherwise.

Edward Snowden has already entered this country's posterity of honor, if one asks me.

Today's traitors in office will be part of the people's memory about infamy.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Someone mentioned else where when silk road got busted

that there's a growing number of young men willing to risk life imprisonment/their lives just because they hate the way things are. Snowden apparently expected to be in prison by now yet he did what he did. Dread Pirate Roberts aka Ross Ulbricht wrote that he had mentally prepared himself for life imprisonment. Reddit founder Aaron Swartz died fighting for freedom of information. Assange and Manning are basically locked up forever. These guys are all heroes imho. What they've done is a sacrifice for the good of us all.
