Edward Snowden, the guy who leaked the classified NSA program that allows the government to see basically everything you do online, is on the lam in Hong Kong seeking political asylum or, you know, trying to remain alive. He spoke to The Guardian about the program and his reasons for going public with it… it’s pretty much the most frightening thing ever:
“Yes, I could be rendered by the CIA. I could have people come after me. Or any of the third-party partners. They work closely with a number of other nations. Or they could pay off the Triads. Any of their agents or assets,” he said.
“We have got a CIA station just up the road – the consulate here in Hong Kong – and I am sure they are going to be busy for the next week. And that is a concern I will live with for the rest of my life, however long that happens to be.”
This is more important than anything you will read on this site all week, or ever. Do watch that whole video when you get a chance.
“On the lam” = On the run
“On the lamb” = Something sheep herders do to keep warm on cold, lonely nights
Must of clicked on the CNN pop up
This guy is a clown. He doesnt know jack about CIA safehouses or undercover assets. You think our government would stick all their eggs in one basket so one moron could just walk out with everything and “shut down our intelligence system.” Give me a break. Hes trying to draw attention to himself. He realizes that yea, we the public care about our safety and if the govt wants to listen to me have phone sex, well go ahead. F**k this idiot.
Am I supposed to be impressed by this whiny, four-eyed pussy (kinda looks like Kyle) who spilled classified information, a crime under the Patriot Act I think, then ran to Hong Kong like a coward instead of staying put to face the music? Rendered by the CIA? That sounds like something a TV chef does with pork fat in a skillet! Pay off the Triads? Jesus Christ! He’s read too many Robert Ludlum novels! What makes this miserable pencil dick any different from Bradley Manning of Wikileaks infamy? Right or wrong, this is the world we live in today, thanks to 9/11 which was THE MOST FRIGHTENING THING EVER. When I want big balls, I go to Chip Kelly, not this loser.
The 2 posters above me are severely retarded. Go move to North Korea of Saudi Arabia.

They can find you even if your phone is off. Bin Laden would make a call and give his phone to a flunky and send him out in the desert. Look up Sibel Edmonds. FBI translator. She saw that 911 was allowed to happen ala Pearl Harbor. She was fired and made to sign gag order. the CIA looks at people like chess pieces….not as people. grapevine says world could get ugly real soon……big picture is Syria. all these scandals….IRS, Benghazi, Associated Press, Teabaggers…..is all a diversion..
How long before we start drone striking targets in the US?
I’m going to take the “over” on never
Wrong. Obama approved 30,000 drones to be used in US airspace.
better watch out, Eagles tailgaters……
And that equate to drone strikes…how exactly? Any idea how many fighter jets are in the air over the US at any one time? Here’s a hint: It’s a number larger than 1. Last time you heard about a rogue F-18 strike here?
f18’s are a little hard to use for surveillance. they kind of make a little noise. no seriously drones over people’s houses is some serious 1984 shit. fuck that.
I love sports!
Amen. But sometimes there are other important matter of business. Like big balls and freedom hahah
A lot of central statist pussies on this site.
You’re in the liberal heaven of Philadelphia. Shitty infrastructure, high crime but hey, free food and healthcare for everyone. but even the republicans are giant boot-lickin government loving statists. Facebook conservatives all about their guns all day and how tough they are but are scared shitless of some dirty farmers in bumblefuckistan.
@Ransom: ain’t gonna be nothing “rogue” about drone strikes here in the US. The first drone was deployed by the Houston Police force. equipped with stun gun and rubber bullets. can be refitted with .50 cal.
