Edward Joseph Snowden – A hero!

Posted by Iver Neumann on 12. July 2013 in Humanrights, Politics |

What options did he have?

 1.     Turn to the US “Whistleblower Protection Program”.

Do you really think they would treat him fairly? No, they would treat him as a criminal to set an example for everyone who want try something similar. Therefore, this was NOT an option for Snowden!

 

2.    Shut up about it.

Yes, he could but would not. The info was too important to shut up about.

 

3.    Tell the US authorities and get rich by pressing them for money to shut up.

Yes, he could and live a comfortable life hereon.

 

None of these options was acceptable for Snowden. He did a brave act to expose the truth.

 

His only option were then to seek asylum in an other country.

Any country who do not support the US way of handling this, should be as brave as Snowden, and grant him asylum.
