Our own blogger marthews and 4th Amendment guru posted about the
rally that took place yesterday in an effort to spread awareness of a national….oops, make that international scandal of the Bush-era, Obama Administration tactics with massive surveillance.
The march (or rally) in Washington D.C. Saturday, October 26, 2013 was attended by thousands of people from across the United States. Speakers included ACLU representatives and a message delivered by the Russian government from self-exiled, Edward Snowden.
Mr. Snowden, the former contractor for the National Security Agency (NSA) who provided leaks about agency phone and Internet interceptions, is a key figure in the current controversy involving the agency. His message to the rally came as a statement sent from Russia, where he now lives under temporary asylum to avoid prosecution in the United States.
Snowden described “a system of pervasive surveillance” operating against American citizens, and he urged technology and free rights activists to spread awareness of the spying violations in the name of reform.
Is this what you expected, wanted, accept from the POTUS?
