Edward Snowden LIVE Chat Today 1/23 - 3pm ET

TODAY, Edward Snowden is hosting a Q&A on his official support site, freesnowden.is, this Thursday 23rd January at 3pm EST. You can submit your questions to Edward by using the hashtag #AskSnowden on Twitter.

Snowden is expected to respond to President Obama’s proposal for modest reforms to the NSA. He’ll also likely respond to accusations from a few U.S. officials that he had ‘help from Russia’ or is a defector. Read his initial response to those claims published by the New Yorker today here.

UPDATE: He's continuing beyond the hour...

This was epic!

This is a global problem, and America needs to take the lead in fixing it. If our government decides our Constitution’s 4th Amendment prohibition against unreasonable seizures no longer applies simply because that’s a more efficient means of snooping, we’re setting a precedent that immunizes the government of every two-bit dictator to perform the same kind of indiscriminate, dragnet surveillance of entire populations that the NSA is doing.

It’s not good for our country, it’s not good for the world, and I wasn’t going to stand by and watch it happen, no matter how much it cost me. The NSA and the rest of the US Intelligence Community is exceptionally well positioned to meet our intelligence requirements through targeted surveillance — the same way we’ve always done it — without resorting to the mass surveillance of entire populations.

When we’re sophisticated enough to be able to break into any device in the world we want to (up to and including Angela Merkel’s phone, if reports are to be believed), there’s no excuse to wasting our time collecting the call records of grandmothers in Missouri...

The Alien Story Is TRUE

Barack Obama is an ILLEGAL ALIEN..

This is TODAY at 3pm EST, folks.

The odds of getting your question through are pretty slim, but I do think it will be fascinating to watch unfold. Drudge just tweeted and put a link up on his site. This will be historic...

Is the alien story true? Have

Is the alien story true?
Have you found out any secrets regarding the FED or banking families?
Is Obama foreign?

lol surely we can do better than that?

I'm curious if he ultimately has audio of phone calls. Wouldn't it just be great to have audio of Rep Peter King's cell phone conversations? What would he say if that was released?

Did Snowden have the ability (and does the NSA) to access the audio of cell phone conversations if he had the number?
