Watch the video if you can find a way. It’s very good. (It keeps getting removed from video sites, although that’s more likely because of ARD takedown notices, not a government censorship conspiracy.)
There’s more coverage by The Guardian and The New York Times.
Edward Snowden is a national hero and a true patriot. History will not look kindly on the government’s actions during this time. This will tarnish President Obama’s legacy much more than an overloaded website.
Snowden’s cause is still news, and it must continue to be news. As it develops, it’s getting even scarier. This is a massive scandal that will tarnish the United States’ long-term reputation even more than the entire George W. Bush administration. We can’t let our never-ending supply of frivolous news bury this with public apathy and indifference.
