There are some good people near the end of their careers. One or more needs to volunteer to be brought up to speed so they can inform the public.
Protections that cannot be used are worthless. We MUST find a way to get the info to the rightful owners (that would be us), rather than force anymore people (like Manning and Snowden)to sacrifice their futures doing the job that our public servants exist to do. There is no excuse. We are faced with fascism (I wish that was hyperbole). Forceful action must be taken now. Being a "good German" in this situation is not nearly good enough.
Thank you for your stunning article. You have performed an incredible service that is much appreciated. I hope you keep writing.
