  1. Contrary to many in the US, most of the world considers this man to be a hero. And he really is.
    But also for the people in the US – most just dont want to acknowledge what he did for them when he exposed the privacy intrusion hydra the NSA was. And because of that, this hydra is probably going back to what it did before Snowden showed us…

    • People call him a hero because, they only know part of the story.

    • I remember hearing one the ladies on The View insisting that she wants her freedom taken away because she also bought into the 9/11 myth. Exactly what the Republicans want, for the masses to be so scared of terrifying brown people that they willingly give up their freedom and actually ask to be monitored by the government.

    • @keith parkhill He will if the Russians need to trade him for something of more value.

    💖 Love Snowden for sharing
    with the Public these
    Data Gathering Techniques 💖

    • I dont think this is new. Your phone and smart tV do collect data on you. They sell your data to make money off you , we all know this.

      That is why I am not big on buying the iPhone and any other new phone I’m keep my old phones

  3. I think that whatever Snowden talks about here in this interview is way beyond the third grade intellectual capacity of the orangutan in chief.

  4. Hi government!!!! 🖐🖐🖐🖐🖐😜😜😜😜

  5. Snowden is telling the truth, be afraid of what’s coming up. It will get even worse and nobody does something about it. Edward is a hero who sacrificed so much to let us know what’s really going on.

  6. This is some scary stuff.. I’m speechless

  7. He is a hero! He is warning us we should be afreid of whats coming for us

    • @Tom Green Wealth and education guide me. Best wishes. Cheers

    • @Gabriel Diggs ⬇️ ( OMG,that’s a big but)
      yes, you do vote BUT you also have gerrymandering and data firms like Cambridge analytica. You also have a zombie like cult that has claimed about 40% of the population. Plus I haven’t heard anyone of your politicians address any of these issues. I have heard of them trying to protect the election process but nobody that I know of has even mentioned about creating new laws that protect the average Joe. If I’m right then there isn’t even a plan yet. I haven’t paid much attention to the candidates but I am familiar with Sanders Warren’s and bidens platforms. i haven’t heard anything about any of the Republicans platforms but I wouldn’t recommend any of them this go around, EVEN if they had a great platform.
      I really hope the US makes a much better decision this time.

    • foreigner fan The ONLY FAKE News Comes from The Fox “News Propaganda Station And your Man Child Donny Thin Skin !

    • @DAVE D If only you meant more to me lol. Cheers

    • @Tom Green Stacey Abrams has formed an election security and advocacy coalition called Fair Fight 2020. She is one of our politicians and she has taken the issue head on along with other Democrats. Read up on it here

  8. i’d vote for a president that would pardon snowden.

    • Yes but too bad he won’t do it. It would be political suicide of the highest order for the party that allowed that to happen.

    • I’d vote for a president that would pardon Chelsea Manning . She had the balls to stay and face the music .

      Put him in his cabinet as the guardian of our privacy where he’ll dismantle our government’s paranoid fear of it.

    Snowden is a national hero and instead is treated like a criminal because he speaks the truth that is so obvious yet many of us are still blind to

    • Vehicle accidents murders are all coordinated by criminals via phone tracking but is snow head warning you of this , no he ain’t, but watch out the gov is tracking you… hopefully when my government tracks me they pick up the criminals paedophiles the gang monsters and terrorists that are tracking me …my government is not trying to sabotage me snowdrop but plenty of gang members and criminals and PEDOPHILE and racists are

    • Kathy : Those, “pedophiles and criminals,” they, “pick up,” are all working in the White House now, or being appointed to the courts. You’re, “not being warned,” now, because Snowden made it all common knowledge, years ago. But, you only, “know,” these things because of him. You write like a child, so I can understand why you may be worried, but you can take comfort from Kavanaugh’s pending Impeachment. One less to worry about 🙂

    • Kathy Wedzik remember it’s a double edged sword. If it can be used for them it can be used for you as well. Like he states, if they wanted to, they can affect your whole livelihood in the US.

    So unjust,that this man has no medal or Nobel price 🤔 – Free Snowden.

  11. When people trade liberty for safety we lose our country

  12. Nope. I’ll never own a cell phone. At first, the convenience looked nice . . . now the zombies! Everywhere! Can’t drive, walk, excrete, eat, or anything without either the Tooth turned on, or the rectangular cancer machines jammed into their face, thumbs flying. I’m too disgusted with people’s habits to ever want one. Yeah, I’m old. But I’ve worked in computers, beginning in the US Army since 1979. So I’m more than a bit “Tech-Savy” . . . I’m simply in charge of the tech I use. Not the other way around. If you don’t want to be tracked, get a new hobby. Put down the cell, go outside and play.

    • Great advice.

    • I’m not old and I choose not to use one. I lost mine last year and discovered Google tracks us through our smartphones wherever we go. That was quite a revelation. Then a colleague gave me an old one because she was frustrated she couldn’t get hold of me. It kind of alienates you from the herd. When I am with friends I generally find myself sitting and staring off into space while they tend to their smartphones, oblivious to the idea that they are with someone in person and not present at all.

      I’d love to have friends who choose to be present and enjoy an intellectual conversation with someone right in front of them.

      @monroe444444 If u had a smartphone, u could text those friends – to let them know you are leaving 😁

    • @Torben Andersen I realize you’re being facetious but even when I have a phone with me, it stays in my bag and I do not pull it out around friends unless there is a dire emergency. I think maybe you’re right though, I could just stand up and say I’m leaving, let me know when you’re available talk.

  13. I’d worry more about Google having your full biography than the government launching an expensive cyber attack on your phone.

  14. Snowden.
    A hero that will be taught about in future.
    People in the future will have a hard time understanding why we didn’t act upon having this info.

  15. The government is the biggest criminal gang in America.

    Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. -Benjamin Franklin

    • The people who work for the government have gone to the same schools, have the same culture and are our neighbors, our friends and our relatives. It looks like the bad guys can choose from a big pool of bad guys.

    People also need to realize our freedom of privacy also died on 9/11, so I’m not surprised by this.

    • @signalfire6 That is it exactly. But if anyone tries to tell the truth he or she gets labelled a conspiracy theorist and ridiculed.

    • George B. Wolffsohn | September 18, 2019 at 1:26 AM | Reply

      @nitram voksmad Amendment 4 :
      The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and PARTICULARLY describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
      That is my right to privacy.
      I draw your attention to the use of the word “particularly”. The person who would attempt to take something of mine must know what it is and where it is in order to get a search warrant to obtain it. This stipulation has been watered down of late but I stand by it.
      Regarding digital content: in this discussion it falls under the category of “papers” they are all only digital copies of what could be hard copy documents whether in print, or photo, or auditory format.

    • George B. Wolffsohn | September 18, 2019 at 1:31 AM | Reply

      Yeah. Thank you Dubbyah for that UN – Patriot Act.
      A bunch of paranoid piffle if you ask me, and a key moment in our national descent into abject fear of our own shadows.

    • The “me not surprised” is a silly attempt of bolstering. Also very passive and submissive. Can’t relate, I’m still alive and kicking.

    • Why didn’t people figured this out before 9/11? Were people so naive in thinking that the NSA was just about breaking foreign intelligence codes? Apparently people still do not know about the FBI’s cointelpro program either and how they surveiled groups like the black panthers back in the 60s.

  17. Pleasant to see the media giving this guy a platform instead of spreading government propaganda as usual (look up Operation Mockingbird).

    “Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the U.S. media.”
    -Noam Chomsky

  18. Snowden is a true patriot it’s a shame our government has screwed him over

  19. Snowden is a true hero! I wish him well and stay safe. Hope the U.S can pardon him one day. but doubt that will ever happen unfortunately.

  20. Free Snowden!! He is an innocent man. If whistleblowing is a crime, then we all in trouble.
