10 Serious Considerations/Revelations (snip-less) re Snowden Scenario

1) Political asylum is an internationally recognized right. Snowden’s motives for releasing the surveillance info were in the public interest --and not just the American public’s. It was not for private and self-aggrandizing gains. Snowden discovered a massive government conspiracy to violate the Fourth Amendment with “unreasonable searches and seizures.” It was his legal and moral duty to disclose it. Snowden’s fear of persecution is well-founded. He could face torture, incarceration without trial, or death (already may be on the "kill list") under the M.O. Read below the fold...

Gary Leupp in “Here’s What People Think About You, When You Dis Edward Snowden”:

[followup to open letter to Melissa Harris-Perry] Your colleague Rachel Maddow (who often disappoints me too) did a nice segment last night on the harassment of Bolivian president Evo Morales as he tried, aboard his presidential plane, to return home to La Paz from Moscow.

Obama Steps Up Cruelty to Gitmo Hunger-Strikers

From the moment Obama became a presidential candidate in 2007, he campaigned vigorously against Guantánamo as a pillar of the flawed and failed Bush-Cheney war policy.

Libby’s Stew: Obama in Germany, Ireland, and Stasi America

Obama in Germany

Paul Craig Roberts in “Hypocrisy At The Brandenburg Gate - Stasi in the White House”



Obama’s speech will go down in history as the most hypocritical of all time. Little wonder that the audience was there by invitation only. A real audience would have hooted Obama out of Berlin.

US Joins Genocidal Jihad Against Middle Eastern Shia! WTF?

Criminal hegemonic war-mongerers, including Obama with his charming PR speech, are among the G-8 power leaders meeting in Northern Ireland to discuss the fate of Syria.

Snowden: To be Droned Disappeared DeathSentenced Imprisoned?

Johnathan Easley in “Ron Paul Warns US Government May Assassinate NSA Leaker Snowden” quotes the former Republican Representative from Texas:



“I’m worried about somebody in our government might kill him with a cruise missile or a drone missile ... I mean, we live in a bad time where American citizens don’t even have rights, and that they can be killed, but the gentleman is trying to tell the truth about what’s going on.”

Paul Street: ‘Obama’s Resume of Betrayal’

Thread: 

Paul Street in “Power Served, Millions Betrayed” presents the reality of Obama’s conservative neoliberal ideology and takes on the personality-cultish, propaganda-spun good will so many progressives still cling to regarding Obama:
