Sam Adams statement on award to Snowden

Sam Adams statement on award to Snowden

In other news “Edward Snowden has been named recipient of this year’s award for truth telling given by Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence.”

As “[m]ost of the Sam Adams Associates are former senior national security officials who […] understand fully the need to keep legitimate secrets” I think honouring Snowden in this way makes an important statement.

Meanwhile, in Russia, a travel warning has been issued that “[r]ecently, detentions of Russian citizens in various countries, at the request of American law enforcement, have become more frequent — with the goal of extradition and legal prosecution in the United States.”

More Snowden news, and part two of my “Common Sense Is Not So Common” series, will follow shortly.
