Watch out for Big Brother

July 3, 2013 

Edward Snowden, an enigma. First, he is a hero for exposing the unwarranted random top secret surveillance of the press and ordinary American citizens by the NSA contractors. Then he became the bad guy who leaked information to the world. Now he is being charged with theft and espionage -- quite a reversal of fortune.

Letter writers Michael Ray Dillier, Leon Anderson, et al need to reflect on these fact. If they used any of the trigger words in their letters to the BND, they could be on the NSA watch list. Scary.
