EDWARD SNOWDEN, PART 1 AND 2
“Considering the enormous value of the information he has revealed, and the abuses he has exposed, [Edward] Snowden deserves better than a life of permanent exile, fear and flight. He may have committed a crime to do so, but he has done his country a great service. It is time for the United States to offer Mr. Snowden a plea bargain or some form of clemency that would allow him to return home, face at least substantially reduced punishment in light of his role as a whistle-blower, and have the hope of a life advocating for greater privacy and far stronger oversight of the runaway intelligence community.”
— from “Edward Snowden, whistle blower”, a recent New York Times editorial. “They’ve really made themselves a blame-America first rag, and why we exalt The New York Times is beyond me. They go out of their way to be apologists for terrorists and go after those in law enforcement and military who are trying to win this war…They have this narrow, liberal, left-wing ideological point of view. They did it to the NYPD; they’re trying to do it to the NSA. It’s time for Americans to stand up and reject The New York Times and expose them for the rag that they are.”
— Rep. Peter King, New York Republican, reacting to the aforementioned editorial, to Fox News.
