If millions of us stand with Edward in the next 48 hours, it will send a powerful statement that he should be treated like the brave whistleblower that he is, and it should be PRISM, and not Edward, that the US cracks down on.

Happily signed! Snowden is merely doing what our failed corporate media should have done. The world desperately needs more brave whistleblowers like him and Bradley Manning.

Noted, tweeted, and shared. This is a conflict for me; I believe in personal freedom, but I also believe in safety for our nation. To me, it's a Catch-22 situation. Personally, I think he hurt our country by his actions, but I do believe he followed his conscience. Can't sign the petition but don't want him in jail.

The more the country tends to feed the media to make this guy look repulsive and anti-American - the more I tend to dispel my doubts and wish him victory - this man has brought attention to a discussion that should have been taking place at the beginning of the Patriot Act decision, but to ask us to believe he had many other means of discussing his gripes with congressmen and "higher-ups" - is really asking a lot of us - I don't believe that our country has a proven record of having either a "transparent" government, or one that can be "trusted" - it'll take a long while for it to regain credibility as a "government - for or by the people" - and not for/by the plutocratic corporations that are currently directing the entire sham!

Signed and Noted. I believe that history will back on the Bradley Manning's and Eric Snowden's as shining lights during a very dark time in human history. They make me think of the wise words of E. Burke....

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
Edmund Burke
Irish orator, philosopher, & politician (1729 - 1797)

Thank goodness for good men like these. I hope there are more. We need them desperately.

The Silent Majority RULES with the leadership of those that set the course of TRUTH in action.
Let us practice "actions speak louder than words and checkmarks on a page". Every action, no matter how big or small or loud or quiet is more powerful than HAARP or any DRONE or political ego mumbo jumbo.

I'm going to post some stuff on Bradley Manning's ongoing trial which is being ignored by media.

But right now, I want to repost a comment I made on the US government and the typical patriot. I have a long background in psychology, and if it gets abstruse, please consider it anyway:

The US has pursued exceptionalism, the pretension to being different from other nations. That is imbedded in its educational indoctrination of its citizens and its self-presentation to the world since its inception.

As you clearly see, the reality is quite different. That nation has pursued as draconian policies as much as its officials have dared.
The astonishing murder and displacement of its indigenous, and now those who expose the choices and actions of its demented leaders (I discuss my characterisation next)occurred through rationalisations really not different than Nazi Germany, for instance.
You will find distressing parallels in its personalities and policies.

In the US, its officially presented history exacerbates in many or most citizens a human trait that results in extremes as grandiose narcissism. This disorder is exactly the root of blind patriotism resulting in the terrible violence toward innocents called "collateral damage."

Narcissism results in really massive misattribution. Misattribution, as you see in the trial and in the proclamations of US leaders, is a characteristic of individuals in the US government, who are clearly falling prey to this grandiose narcissism.

For further understanding of the actions of members of the US government and military in the Bradley Manning case, please explore what is called the "dark triad."
These personalities generally rise to control of nation-states, and the US is perhaps the epitome of their emergence.
You will notice that varying blends of the three disorders are characteristic of nearly all members of military, although many others enter that profession through the false advertisement required to enlist noncombatant and logistic personnel.

Very disturbing what's going on... People who should be held as examples for American values are being tried for treason. Meanwhile, those who engage in treason (and other immoral acts such as defrauding thousands of employees at Enron) get away with huge crimes (Skilling quietly got his already short sentence reduced just recently). If he were poor and had stolen milk three times...
