Who’s the criminal: James Clapper or Edward Snowden?

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Secrecy is the health of the national security state–the more revelations, the weaker it's likely to become.” – Gary Chartier

 

Please help build momentum to pardon Edward Snowden. Ask Congress to pressure the President using DownsizeDC.org's Pardon Snowden campaign.

 

You may borrow from or edit this letter…

 

We should THANK Edward Snowden for exposing the NSA’s unconstitutional and immoral bulk collection of our Internet activities and phone data.

 

Instead, he faces possibly decades in prison if he returns to America.  

 

In contrast, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper lied to Congress about the NSA’s data-mining program. That’s a felony, but he was never even investigated or fired.

 

If Clapper can get away with lying, what does that tell us? Is there a  “secret government” that Congress is subservient to?

 

Is the Republic dead?

 

Pardoning Snowden would be one way of restoring accountability. But the President won’t pardon Snowden unless it’s politically expedient.

 

That’s why YOU must take action.

 

* Pass a resolution telling the President that Edward Snowden should be pardoned.

* Pass a bill that prohibits funding for Snowden’s prosecution.

* Pass a bill that reinstates Snowden’s U.S. passport.

 

I'll be watching what you do.
