Mike Pompeo, a U.S. Representative, is imploring SxSW to cancel the planned tele-appearance by Edward Snowden. I encourage you to read the entire piece. It’s really special. He’s either just an amazingly good liar or he doesn’t realize that the answer to nearly every one of his questions is “Bradley Manning.”
Nearly everything that has been released by Manning thus far has been evidence of massive lawlessness on the part of the NSA. It has demonstrated the utter lack of effectiveness of the bodies charged with oversight of the NSA’s activities. Thus far, the items that have been released apparently been true and accurate.
My point is that I don’t think it’s Snowden who has the credibility problem here.
