National security and whistle-blowers
A score card
For the benefit of those who continue to extol whistle-blowers Bradley (now Chelsea) Manning and Edward Snowden as heroes, I’d like to be sure you’ve been provided the latest updates on both:
Hero Manning has in recent days fully acknowledged and taken responsibility for the many negative consequences that have arisen from her actions;
Hero Snowden, as one who laments privacy violations on the part of our government, continues asylum in the land of some of the worst human-rights violations of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Happy to be of help.
