Techdirt Podcast Episode 93: Pardon Snowden

from the sooner-rather-than-later dept

Edward Snowden deserves a pardon. We all know it — even if you believe he deserves to stand trial, the only option right now is an unfair trial on Espionage Act charges in which he'd be blocked from presenting a meaningful defense. A pardon from those charges is the only just choice. This week, we're joined by Trevor Timm, co-founder of the Freedom Of The Press Foundation, and returning guest Parker Higgins to discuss why Edward Snowden deserves a pardon, and the campaign to get him one deserves your support.

    Re: He might as well face it

    His exposure of state secrets has weakened many governments and supplied foreign national propagandists with so much ammunition that they are now laughing at how democratic nations are eating themselves from within.

    Sure, it's not like America has been playing directly into the hands of anti-American groups and making a complete ass of itself on the global stage for 15 years, or anything. Snowden left such an unfortunate blemish on the country's otherwise perfect image! Now the international community watches with awe and respect as Trump promises to make America great again after that Snowden asshole screwed it up.
