["Further, it's important to bear in mind I'm being called a traitor by men like former Vice President Dick Cheney. This is a man who gave us the warrantless wiretapping scheme as a kind of atrocity warm-up on the way to deceitfully engineering a conflict that has killed over 4,400 and maimed nearly 32,000 Americans, as well as leaving over 100,000 Iraqis dead. Being called a traitor by Dick Cheney is the highest honor you can give an American, and the more panicked talk we hear from people like him, Feinstein, and King, the better off we all are. If they had taught a class on how to be the kind of citizen Dick Cheney worries about, I would have finished high school."--Edward Joseph Snowden, June 17, 2013]
The aforementioned quote is from the transcript of a live Internet chat that Ed Snowden had with the World, today.
This is my response:
Thank you, once again, Bad Eddy Snowden, for setting the record straight. I admire you so much and I admire what you are doing, even more.
You are doing a good thing and many of us, around the World, appreciate your bold and brave efforts.
You are more than a flash in the pan, my man and your message will illuminate people's minds for a long time to come.
I know that Cheney's a Dick. And I know that "faux sources" like Fox News are wrong when they accuse you of being a "double agent."
What you are is a young man with guts. And even if they lie up to the sky about you, many of us will hold steadfast to the truth. Your truth. THE TRUTH!
You just keep on doing what you're doing, Bad Eddy Snowden. I am learning a great deal from you. We all are. And as time goes on, we will put that knowledge to good use.
May God continue to bless you. You are truly a friend to the world. Thank you also to the Guardian for all your help. Carry on, my Brothers and Sisters in arms. Peace.

What Do Google, Microsoft And Facebook REALLY Want To Say?
[“They are legally compelled to comply and maintain their silence in regard to specifics of the program, but that does not comply them from ethical obligation. If for example Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Apple refused to provide this cooperation with the Intelligence Community, what do you think the government would do? Shut them down."]--Edward Snowden
["All I can say right now is the US Government is not going to be able to cover this up by jailing or murdering me. Truth is coming, and it cannot be stopped."]--Edward Snowden
