Pardon Edward Snowden

Snowden, the American who has probably left the biggest mark on public policy debates during the Obama years, is today an outlaw. Mr. Snowden, a former National Security Agency contractor who disclosed to journalists secret documents detailing the United States’ mass surveillance programs, faces potential espionage charges, even though the president has acknowledged the important public debate his revelations provoked. Mr. That’s just in the American government. Yet President Obama and the candidates to succeed him have emphasized not Mr.

Eric H. The law the Obama administration wants to use to prosecute him takes no account of whether revealing this information was a public service. There is obviously a public interest in enabling the government to keep some national security information secret. The enormous value of Mr. Photo MOSCOW — TWO years ago today, three journalists and I worked nervously in a Hong Kong hotel room, waiting to see how the world would react to the revelation that the National Security Agency had been making records of nearly every phone call in the United States.

In the days that followed, those journalists and others published documents revealing that democratic governments had been monitoring the private activities of ordinary citizens who had done nothing wrong. Within days, the United States government responded by bringing charges against me under World War I-era espionage laws. The journalists were advised by lawyers that they risked arrest or subpoena if they returned to the United States. Politicians raced to condemn our efforts as un-American, even treasonous. Confession d'un espion du siècle. C’est une image paisible.

Edward Snowden et sa compagne, la danseuse et acrobate Lindsay Mills, font bouillir de l’eau dans leur cuisine moscovite, où Snowden a obtenu, pour trois ans, l’asile politique. Paisible comme cette station de surveillance de l’Agence américaine pour la sécurité (National Security Agency, NSA) à Menwith Hill, au Royaume-Uni. « Men-with » – littéralement « avec les hommes ». D’immenses antennes protégées par des dômes semblables à des balles de golf sont abandonnées là, entre deux collines, dérobées aux regard.

Tails: the operating system that blew open the NSA

But this month, we learned that Snowden used another technology to keep his communications out of the NSA's prying eyes. It's called Tails. And naturally, nobody knows exactly who created it. Tails is a kind of computer-in-a-box. You install it on a DVD or USB drive, boot up the computer from the drive and, voila, you're pretty close to anonymous on the internet.

Live Q&A with Edward Snowden: Thursday 23rd January, 8pm GMT, 3pm EST

I think spying makes us less safe. do you agree? Intelligence agencies do have a role to play, and the people at the working level at the NSA, CIA, or any other member of the IC are not out to get you. They’re good people trying to do the right thing, and I can tell you from personal experience that they were worried about the same things I was. The people you need to watch out for are the unaccountable senior officials authorizing these unconstitutional programs, and unreliable mechanisms like the secret FISA court, a rubber-stamp authority that approves 99.97% of government requests (which denied only 11 requests out of 33,900 in 33 years They’re the ones that get us into trouble with the Constitution by letting us go too far.

And even the President now agrees our surveillance programs are going too far, gathering massive amounts of private records on ordinary Americans who have never been suspected of any crime. Yes. Revelations. Documents revealed by Edward Snowden and pertaining to the National Security Agency (NSA), US surveillance programs and US Intelligence Community partners abroad have been released and reported on since 5 June 2013.

Edward Snowden: the whistleblower behind the NSA surveillance revelations

Snowden has been working at the National Security Agency for the last four years as an employee of various outside contractors, including Booz Allen and Dell. The Guardian, after several days of interviews, is revealing his identity at his request. From the moment he decided to disclose numerous top-secret documents to the public, he was determined not to opt for the protection of anonymity. "I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong," he said. NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden: 'I don't want to live in a society that does these sort of things' – video. Julian Assange : "L'Europe doit protéger Edward Snowden" LE MONDE | • Mis à jour le | Par Julian Assange (fondateur et rédacteur en chef de WikiLeaks) et Christophe Deloire (Secrétaire général de Reporters sans frontières) Le 12 octobre 2012, le prix Nobel de la paix était attribué à l'Union européenne pour "sa contribution à la promotion de la paix, la réconciliation, la démocratie et les droits de l'homme en Europe".

Julian Assange : "L'Europe doit protéger Edward Snowden"

L'Europe doit se montrer à la hauteur et démontrer sa volonté de défendre la liberté de l'information, quelles que soient les craintes de pressions politiques de son "meilleur allié", les Etats-Unis.

This is a guest post from Jon Rappoport If you absolutely must have a hero, watch Superman movies. If your need for a hero is so great, so cloying, so heavy, so juicy that it swamps your curiosity, don’t read this. If you can’t separate Edward Snowden’s minor revelations from the question of who he is, if you can’t entertain the notion that covert ops and intelligence-agency games are reeking with cover stories, false trails, and limited hangouts, you need more fun in your life. NSA? CIA? Okay. Is the Pope Catholic?
