privacy and how much should the public know …

A few days ago I went on a rant with regard to Edward Snowden, the SOB who stole and then shared intel files with people who he had to know were not our friends.  Mostly left wing press and especially the Guardian here in the UK.  Guardian. Think Trotsky - Marx etc.  Not that I’d have admired the thief had he passed on to right wing media.  Based on what we are hearing and reading here, much of the material was highly sensitive, some less so in matters of state security but embarrassing nonetheless.  Who gave him a license to decide to act as he did?
He stole so much that there was no way on god’s green earth he’d have had time to read it all and see what was dangerous and what wasn’t, to pass on to .... foreigners.  I call that treason.

So anyway ... I posted under the heading,

Can you see any reason to let these scum live?  I don’t but I know they will. Damn it!

Which brought a reasoned response from one of our readers, which we welcome.
Normally, I’d have left a reply under comments as that’s where replies belong. But I feel strongly enough about this subject to place it here on our front page.

The reply to my post as follows .

I left DC 6 weeks ago after 10 years in the Beltway and have come away convinced that Snowden isn’t the criminal that many rabid bloggers made him out to be.

He revealed the largest infringement on human privacy **ever**.

Why is the public so silent about it? I’m not sure.

What privacy?

It isn’t conceivable that the NSA - CIA -FBI combined, have the numbers necessary to monitor ALL calls and mails and email etc of the general public.
I really doubt the average person has anything of any interest to those agencies. They’d be wasting time they do not have trying to listen to everybody. I honestly do not think any generation before has faced the type of threat to national security that the current one is exposed to. So it may be a matter of desperate measures to counter the threat.

No, I do think Snowden is exactly the criminal rat I believe him to be.
He stole thousands of files and handed them off to people who btw are anti American to begin with. His recent so called free speech award comes from a very left wing group, there can be no doubt he shared our secrets with the Chinese and Russians.

Both he and Manning are traitors and should be eliminated. But what the heck, nobody tossed acid in Jane Fonda’s face after Nam, or even shot her dead. So I guess it only follows with the new standards of treason that Snowden is a hero.  Look for the book and movie soon.  His mom will no doubt be portrayed by Fonda and if he has any sisters they’ll be played by the dixie ditsy chicks.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
