Edward Snowden Is A Traitor Deserving Death…
I am shocked that our Intelligence Agencies spy on our friends and foes alike in their business endeavors or to know of advantages that they may hold in military or otherwise - it is what is coined in the “Cloak and Dagger” world as Industrial Espionage, as opposed to the 007 lethal kind... and this morning, Edward Snowden, the former sub-contractor employee of the National Security Agency (NSA), was griping and seems to be genuinely outraged at our Espionage programs. Of course, Mr. Snowden is a paradigm of conviction because he was doing his ‘bitching’ on the run after exposing our secrets to the world - such bravery, I tell you.
Every time, I am confronted with an issue, I have a tendency of placing myself in others’ shoes before weighing in on said issue and with that said, let us take the case of Mr. Snowden and let us pretend that I am in a similar job of mining and gleaning data for the protection of this country. Let us also suppose that I am privy to the fact that the NSA was guilty of allegedly, illegally listening in our phone calls via a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) scheme and by looking at our e-mails by another scheme, PRISM - but suppose that releasing this alleged ‘wrongdoing’ of the NSA that it could put actual lives in jeopardy, and moreover, our the country’s security as a whole... should not myself or Mr. Snowden be prudent in releasing this information, especially since there are legal avenues to do so that are in place already?
Are we to believe that Mr. Snowden had to travel to a hostile country to expose the United States, and ironically, travelling to Hong Kong, whose Fiefdom lords, the Chinese, are the poster children for Human Rights abuses. In the same vein, it was rather gratingly funny to hear Vladimir Putin, the Russian dictator, lecturing America, even going so far as to dangle the asylum carrot to Mr. Snowden - this is the same Russian dictator who is currently jailing a rock group (Pussy Riot) for what was tantamount to the latter’s freedom of speech done via songs. Mr. Snowden is the typical spoil brat who does not have the courage of his conviction... manifested in the fact that he got out of dodge and like a typical ‘Sociopath Without Portfolio,’ he is rationalizing his wrong doing by emoting how superior he was in exposing the NSA’s wrong doings, but nary an apology for the lives he may have indeed harm. It is even more sickening that Mr. Snowden was making an annual salary of $122,000.00 and with a home in Hawaii… much more than actual Intelligence Operatives who place their lives in jeopardy for God and country on a regular basis.
The irony is that had Mr. Snowden been working on behalf of any other country’s Intelligence Agency, he would be more than likely be dead for what he cravenly did … and I do not have much sympathy for him because there are those out there who are employed by our Cloak/Dagger agencies… dying in anonymity and who are even being buried in anonymity, which underscores how dangerous their jobs are. The selfishness and hypocrisy are both traits of the “me’ generation and Mr. Snowden has demonstrated that he has a chronic case; he will continue to give us bogus, specious analogies to justify his appetite for fame, but I for one equate what Mr. Snowden has done to someone who has murdered others and likewise he should be lethally ‘put down’ for potentially placing operatives lives in certain danger.
The ‘Cloak and Dagger’ spy game is serious business and do not be surprised that other Intelligent Agencies are vying to get their respective hands on Mr. Snowden, providing that he was not engaging in hyperbole in the Intelligence he said that he was privy to. These foreign Intelligence agencies would like to know what Mr. Snowden knows… but anyone who receives the ‘services’ of Mr. Snowden will not trust him because such is the nature of those who betray their countries.
It must be noted that most in the media are going to support Mr. Snowden, because like him… most of them are selfish and hypocritical too. These are the folks whose conviction can give the great Roman statesman and orator, Cicero, a run for his money when they tell you how ‘Progressive’ they are - but, who themselves do not hesitate to call the cops when a Black man dares to walk in their neighborhoods like that of the Upper East Side of New York; or those who wax poetic about the dangers to the Environment, but who themselves always are flying around in their private jets; or those celebrities who were in New York during 911 and who praised the bravery of the firefighters and police officers… but who then speedily got out of dodge; or those who are bemoaning how ‘the rich’ do not pay enough taxes, but who themselves have the best tax lawyers, so not to render unto Caesar. I can give you much more examples if the time were to permit… but take it from me, the ‘pathology' that is chronically plaguing Mr. Snowden is not an aberration to him or many in our society!
