One morning as I scanned the news--horror in the Middle East, Russia and America facing off in the Ukraine, I thought of Edward Snowden and wondered how he was holding up in Moscow. I began to imagine a conversation with him and a few others.
In a surprising statement from the White House, President Obama made clear his support for Putin's offer.
Ben Wizner is busy. He directs the ACLU's Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project and is part of Edward Snowden's legal team. On November 2 at 7:30 pm, Wizner will speak at Lake Forest College.
Some Bernie Sanders supporters, rudely awakened from their White House dreams, got mad over Hillary Clinton's surge after the October 13 debate in Las Vegas.
This is Chris Wallace. In the wake of Joe Biden taking himself out of the race for President, I interviewed the Vice President at his official reside...
Bernie blew it. By embracing rather than confronting Hillary Clinton, Sen. Sanders fell into the trap of sellout mainstream politics ... while studiously avoiding any suggestion that the smiley-faced woman standing next to him is deeply complicit in Wall Street's rape of the nation.
If George Bush claimed he were a progressive, we would rightly laugh. Yet no one -- no one -- challenged Clinton's unequivocal claim to progressivism at the CNN Democratic debate earlier this week.
Until Bernie's revolution recognizes and embraces the real struggle we have between us and a free and just society, and honors those who have taken risks to bring us closer to that day, I think I'll be writing in Edward Snowden on election day.
How revealing that the perpetrators of mass surveillance violating the Fourth Amendment -- from Cheney on down -- don't have to deal with the "traitor" question. That in CNN debates, in the mass media, this grand stigma -- traitor -- is reserved only for whistleblowers.
Barack Obama was, in 2008, the anti-torture candidate. It's a sad comment on the state of U.S. democracy that such a thing ever existed. After all, it would be startling to hear appeals from a pro-oxygen or an anti-apocalypse candidate. Still, it was refreshing. So what happened?
We called for a reform of Executive Order 12333, a primary legal authority for global surveillance, to ensure that it meets international human rights standards. We also demanded measures to ensure that all U.S. surveillance programs comply with international human rights law.
What if Edward Snowden is correct to believe that it's "completely ridiculous" to think Clinton's emails were safe? It's logical to assume that national security was jeopardized if Snowden and others feel Clinton was reckless with her intelligence protocol. We're then looking at a Bernie Sanders landslide victory in the Democratic primaries.
Kim Davis certainly does not walk in the footsteps of progressive leaders who took a stand to improve circumstances for oppressed people. Rather, she follows the muddled path of such people as Alabama Governor George Wallace.
The entrepreneurial spirit of a couple of guys, Wayne Rada and Rey Rosa, is luring artists back into Lower Manhattan, if only to paint a mural and help the tourist trade in Little Italy. That is how the L.I.S.A. Project (Little Italy Street Art) began three years ago.
We never bother to Google "Can you really delete a text message forever?" If we did, we'd discover a treasure trove of procedures for retrieving stuff we wish could vanish; some of those methods even include helpful YouTube videos to aid the technologically challenged.
In a very powerful exclusive interview, I recently had the privilege of speaking to an American hero, William Binney, NSA whistleblower.
