Snowden the Firefighter?
Advocating Liberty from Russia.
NSA leaker Edward Snowden beamed in a transmission to the South by Southwest festival warning that the U.S. government is “setting fire to the future of the Internet” and calling on tech enthusiasts to be “firefighters.” We certainly have our own issues with the NSA’s sweeping surveillance, but it’s ironic and laughable that he’s issuing his warnings on Liberty from Russia, a nation that opposes it at every turn. We can perhaps thank him for shedding light on the NSA, but according to Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, “The vast majority of [the documents Snowden stole] were related to our military capabilities, operations, tactics, techniques and procedures.” He says it “could cost billions of dollars” to repair the damage.
