Look up NSA whistle blower Russel Tice

if you want to see beyond what Snowden has thus far revealed of the depths of NSA corruption. He was one of the main sources for revealing Bush's warrantless wiretapping and has real credibility. In interviews this summer he has revealed that the NSA spies on our press, courts, lawyers and law firms, Hollywood, our military's leadership, Congress, the Supreme Court, even Obama when he was a Senate candidate in 2004. Go watch his latest interviews on PBS, RT, and Sibel Edmonds "Boiling Frogs" whistle blower website, judge the man's own words for yourself. Then look up William Binney, Thomas Drake, Mark Kline, and Sibel Edmonds herself.

For those interested, below are links to excellent interviews w/ Russ Tice.

Corbett Report:


Hero blah blah blah

Has Snowden released anything that was not already released previously by others? Or was he just a cat they couldn't put back in the bag?

It doesn't matter if what he released was unoriginal

Because he's gotten more coverage than all the other whistleblowers combined.

IMO, that's something to celebrate.


you want to celebrate because the NSA is spying on you? Blah blah blah... the media covers what they want you to see.. why do they want you to see Snowden?

Do you think the media is covering Snowden because they can't cover it up? I have a bridge to sell you, if you think that. They almost completely blacked out Ron Paul when they wanted to... the media is not about news it is about achieving an agenda... so why is their agenda Snowden?

No, I want to celebrate...

More people being aware of the NSA spying on us. I don't care what kind of crackpot theories you have about Snowden - people being informed of this was a positive thing, no matter how you try to spin it.

Spin it?

I'm not spinning anything, you are doing the spin...I'm just saying it doesn't ring true... Crackpot theories? Oh, okay, just swallow everything the MSM feeds you... or you may want to watch this: http://www.corbettreport.com/interview-798-what-is-greenwald...

Thank you Edward Snowden, American hero!!

Merry Christmas to you and have your best year ever!!


My sentiments as well....

The 99% missing information leak.

When is Snowden going to release the information? Please don't down vote me for asking the question.

Glenn Greenwald and Annie Poitras

are the ones that have the information - it's not
clear that Snowden is still in possession of it - IIRC
he was worried that it might be taken from him by a
foreign government if he kept possession of it.

So, you should probably be asking that question
of the journalists, not Snowden.

Insincere question gets the

Insincere question gets the downvote anyways.

In what way?

I am sincere. I have serious reservations about it.

Insincere because the

Insincere because the question has been answered repeatedly. Snowden isn't going to release any of it. The parties who possess the full cache of Snowden documents (Greenwald, Poitras, and Gellman) actively do and will continue to report on the documents when they have had enough time to understand them, responsibly vet and redact potentially dangerous or harmful details, and offer the Government the opportunity to comment and request (almost always in vain) additional revisions/redactions. In addition to these 3 individuals with access to the complete set of documents, other large news organizations have also been given large subsets of the documents. Numerous other journalists have been given unfettered access to search the documents on location (a compromise to keep copies of all of the documents to a minimum). There are many unconnected entities now with large copies of all kinds of information, and new stories are being broken constantly, but you have your "sincere reservations about it".

What are your sincere reservations, if I may ask?

There were some men once

who mutually pledged to sacrifice, if necessary, their Lives, their Fortunes, and their Sacred Honor for their Liberty and the Liberty of others.

Does this remind you of anyone?

True Patriotism.

"Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty."

Freedom is a byproduct of acceptance - judge not.

You are also a modern day Paul Revere.
Merry Christmas to you.

Video removed. Know where

Video removed. Know where another copy is? I would like to see it. This is one reason that when I see an interesting video posted here, I try to download it right away because I don't know if (when) youtube will block it.

Beware the cult of "government"...

Merry Christmas and God Bless you, Edward!

You are a true patriot. Thank you for all you have done for the people of the world. We are all richer for your bravery.

Your sacrifice...

Your sacrifice for me and my grand children
cannot be measured.
You and Ron Paul are cherished
Let History of these United States so record.
You are not forgotten...
and we look forward to your homecoming and exoneration.
Merry Christmas from your brothers and sisters here.

Thank you from Norway!

Hello Mr. Snowden! Thank you for what you have done, - and thank you for your assistance in opening the eyes of so many people around the world! Your comment on the baby being born today, growing up to have no understanding of the concept of PRIVACY is really something to think about!

This has to stop now, - or I am afraid that our LIVES on this earth, our future as a FREE people, is coming to end before those babies being born now even get to start their lives as adults! THANK YOU and Merry Christmas and may God bless you and your family!

Very thought provoking!

Very thought provoking!

Paul/Snowden 2016

Thank you Mr. Snowden for your patriotism and sacrifices for the people of the world.
Maybe Dr. Paul can add you as his 2016 running mate for President, and you can live free again as V.P.
Hey, its worth the thought...If nothing else, just to see the Warmongers cringe.

Snowden, your the MAN!

Thank you for standing up against Tyranny. Merry Christmas rEVOLution!!!

kind people rock
