Snowden hits the theatre
Snowden, the movie about the life of whistleblower and patriot Edward Snowden hits the theatre September 16th. BBC is reporting that The American Civil Liberties Union and Amnesty International are ready to launch the "Pardon Snowden" campaign. They are urging President Barack Obama to act before he leaves office in January 2017. Wishful thinking. The CIA paid for Obama's education. They only pardon drug traffickers tied to Iran Contra.
Last month I made a blog post comparing Edward Snowden with Liu Xiaobo. The United States government is very passionate about supporting someone like Liu Xiaobo who is a political prisoner in China that won a nobel Peace Prize but they are someone less passionate about supporting someone like Edward Snowden who basically did the same thing. It's very different when the shoe is on the other foot.
Edward Snowden reported unlawful behavior and they want to send him to jail for treason. This is the perfect example of how the west has become just like the communists when it comes to censorship and warrantless surveillance. The fact that they want to put him in jail shows us how far we have fallen from the principles of the US Constitution.
