Patriotism, Moral Courage & Loyalty - Edward Snowden

I think Daniel Ellsberg got it exactly right when he said recently of Edward Snowden:

Either way, nothing excuses Kerry's slanderous and despicable characterizations of a young man who, in my opinion, has done more than anyone in or out of government in this century to demonstrate his patriotism, moral courage and loyalty to the oath of office the three of us swore: to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

The truth becomes treason in an empire of lies, it is said.  And such an empire does not like those who speak the truth, in order to expose the lies.

Fortunately, many Americans are not buying the peddled nonsense.

Edward Snowden is a hero and a great American.
