Snowden sounds like one of his generation who was attracted to Ron Paul, liking neither Bush nor Obama nor Romney, etc. Sounds more like Ellsberg than Manning. Whether in the end he did a good think remain to be seen. It’s not as if we didn’t suspect what was going on, but this just confirms it.
How much you wanna bet he is NOT in Hong Kong? That part, I imagine, is purely diversionary or they’d have nabbed him in a NY minute. TMI
The jury is still out for me on whether this was a good move or not. But it certainly is a ballsy move, and I have to respect his courage, if it is entirely of his own devising, that is. Waiting for more detail, assuming we will be able to get the truth. But yes, I thought of Ellsberg immediately as well, not of Manning or Assange.
