History is filled with so much irony it might have been written by Noel Coward, minus the wit. For years the right wing in America accused every liberal of being a Communist and a traitor. Now the right wing is enthralled by Putin and Russia - admiring the thuggery and calling it strength. Trump and Manafort are purveyors of this new myth.

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.

The Black Lives Matter movement needs to continue nonviolent civil disobedience to evoke the change it seeks to fight for. Tying BLM to a potentially violent movement, however politically convenient this may be over the short-term, would delegitimize BLM.

The Southern states in American seem to have a propensity for erecting monuments to traitors, and by the fact that these various statues, reliefs, markers and other forms of memorialization exist, it also seems that those who should have stood in opposition failed at their duty to the truth.

If the government is going to continue the practice of forcing private companies to hand over users’ private information in the name of national security, then the American public should have a right to know which companies are being asked and how often.

Both Bradley and Chelsea are part of the LGBT community. Shouldn't we have treated them with equal care, particularly given the extreme nature of Manning's valor, the disproportionate nature of the risks Manning took?

Subhankar Banerjee

Snowden didn't "betray" his country, but his courageous act and Greenwald's journalism is certainly "inciting people to rebel against the authority of [the] state." Viewed in this way, their act could be considered as seditious, and they are in good company -- with none other than Mahatma Gandhi.

Unless all players are charged with the crime of high treason, his lawyers argue, singling out Musharraf is unfair and unjust. Fearful of backlash and another military coup, these lawyers hope, a pragmatic high court will dismiss the high treason case against Musharraf.
