Edward Snowden: the whistleblower behind the NSA surveillance revelations

The individual responsible for one of the most significant leaks in US political history is Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. 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.

Snowden will go down in history as one of America's most consequential whistleblowers, alongside Daniel Ellsberg and Bradley Manning. He is responsible for handing over material from one of ...

Something more on the original article, Snowden used simple technology to mine NSA computer networks.

I can't seem to find the thread on web searching? I thought there was one?

Anyway, I should add that you can have DuckDuckGo -- Google Tracks You - We Don't. Not only does Google share information with the Government, but it also even with more unreliable private firms.

Anyway, try out DuckDuckGo.

By the way, want to try out a sensible, Bible believing church in the Chicago/Hammond area? Check this one out, Christian Fellowship Church

Jim if these were not your words, then I apologize for my comments. The open account format was an irritant previously but if folks are going to lie and misrepresent in this fashion then this format may be wholly untenable.

Jim, would you care to clarify the difference between the fake Jim's comment about how Caesar is god on earth versus your rendering to Caesar article? Did you feel that the article and comment are in conflict? I'm quite curious at this point.

jpw, if you haven't noticed there are two Jim Lincolns, I'm not responsible for what Faux Jimmy says, Oh, something that may apply to him, and, perhaps, give his idenity away. NOW HEAR THIS: NAVY ABANDONS ALL CAPS It's a pity that some people who such low opinion of themselves or have become so obnoxious they have to assume many false identities, so while he recognizes that I'm much more knowledgeable and smarter than he is, he really should try to finally win some respect on his own in acting in a more civilized way. Rufus, where do I stand on what? I support what is said in, Rendering To Caesar: A Biblical Perspective On Government. What I read more about Mr. Snowden he should come back to the U.S. and stand trial for his actions, He is giving aid and comfort to the enemy, US leaker Snowden both boon and burden for China. He might very well be tried for treason,

Have I mentioned that Christians in the Hammond Ind. area to avoid, Red Hot Preaching, recently?

A little history lesson... Barry wrote that most people routing for Snowden are just against Pres. Obama... I remember many of us (Christians who care about liberty) sounding the alarm when GW Bush forced through the PATRIOT Act that it would invade privacy and infringe on the rights of innocent citizens. Saying "I told you so" gives me no satisfaction. But let's be honest and not forget who shoved through that ungodly and unread bill. And for the Lord's sake, let's not defend the ghastly actions of impotent leaders.
Ms. Wittman, please don't misunderstand my statment about the President. I am not an Obama faithful. When President Bush pushed thru the Patriot Act i wasn't not a poster on SA at the time. The SBC Baptist church I was in at the time was all on board with the Patriot act. That's all I had to go on concerning that.
I have seen many things since President Obama has been in office that was blown out of proportion here on SA and in my local church that was solely based on the fact they did not like President Obama. That was all I was saying here.
I haven't seen anyone in politics that have impressed me for a very long time! Democrat or Republican or Libertarian. My hope and faith will always remain in the Lord.

Immigration standards and enforcement have been so lax in this country for so long that we may very well have many thousands of dangerous people in this country right now.

Now that they are here they are naturally going to use OUR phone and internet systems. I'm told the two "charmers" that blew up the Boston Marathon were known troublemakers--even Russia warned us about them--but we either did nothing or realized we could do nothing at the time. Now Congress and Obama are reacting as best they can which, sadly, is "roughing-up" our Constitutional rights (which often happens during "war"). Believe me I am NO fan of Obama by any means, but I can sure sympathize with the incredible predicament he inherited from previous generations of fat, lazy politicians and those who voted for them.

We're ALL paying for it now.

Angela: I agree and fall into that camp. At the same time, I can understand how the government would need to pursue and prosecute. Snowden should have at least tried talking first to senators who already knew about the program and expressed grave concerns. He could have given them the full extent of the intrusion and watched to see what came of it.

Ah, but I would have no problem at all turning in liars Faux Jimmy!

1 Timothy
9 realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous man, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers
10 and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching,---NASB

In other words, Faux Jimmy, I wouldn't hesitate or loose a moment's sleep turning you in for any illegal action, if the occasion arose.

Now, if you happen to live in the Chicago area, and Christians want to avoid you, and Red Hot Preaching try Christian Fellowship Church.

"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery," but do a better job of it. Faux Jimmy stop acting like a buffoon, even if you might be one.

excerpt from, John Bolton: Snowden 'Committed Act of War Against United States' I will say, only about the first five or so paragraphs, of this Newsmax article is something that I can stomach.
I see Mr. Snowden is going to fight extradition, and not stand up like a man for his actions.
Right you are Jim, why else run to Hong Kong or wherever he went. I guess it's how you want to look at things. I feel like there has to be accountablility. We undecidedlly do not live in a wikileaks world were there can be total transparency and openness. He is no hero in my book however. Most people that are routing for him are just against President Obama. That is what this is really about.
