sunbird writes "Edward Snowden is joining the board of the Freedom of the Press Foundation, a nonprofit committed to defending public-interest journalism which exposes law-breaking in government. Co-founder Glenn Greenwald said, 'We began this organization to protect and support those who are being punished for bringing transparency to the world's most powerful factions or otherwise dissent from government policy. Edward Snowden is a perfect example of our group's purpose, as he's being persecuted for his heroic whistleblowing, and it is very fitting that he can now work alongside us in defense of press freedom, accountability, and the public’s right-to-know.' The foundation is presently raising money and awareness for a variety of open-source encryption tools. Please consider donating to my favorite: the LEAP Encryption Access Project."

    I wonder how he will remain on the board once the feds finally get their hands on him

    As an American, I can't help but feel so ashamed of the country that I love so much.

    The United States of America is fast becoming the United States of Fascists.

    There has never been an occurrence of a variety of human stupidity that Mark Twain has not commented on. One particular quote comes to mind with regard to the anonymous poster above:

    "The trouble ain't that there are too many fools, but that the lightning ain't distributed right.”

    Stay inside, fool.

    because of the government's gross misconduct and illegal evidence gathering.

    So nothing has changed then....

    Sooner or later, someone is going to jail, And I wager it won't be Snowden.
    We can start with a few Judges that violated their oath of office, and denigrated to constitution to the status of a village ordinance.

    Grounding an allied/neutral country's flights is one thing. Fucking with a Russian aircraft is a different story.
