Netroots Nation is a convention for progressive political leaders. Pelosi, a darling of those on the left, was the keynote speaker at the event. But her pro-surveillance, anti-Snowden remarks incited the crowd.  “We’re listening to our progressive leaders who are supposed to be on our side of the team saying it’s OK for us to get targeted” for online surveillance, said Jana Thrift of Eugene, Ore. “It’s crazy.

  • NSA PRISM Program (Unconstitutional spying on Americans)

Are these the things your deadbeat African daddy dreamed about?

PUT THE SHOVEL DOWN — I REPEAT —  PUT THE SHOVEL DOWN!

‘I am not afraid,’ says high-school dropout Edward Snowden, as he reveals his identity from a Hong Kong hotel room

Edward Snowden Prism Whistleblower

The man behind the largest leak of classified information in the history of the US National Security Agency (NSA) has chosen to make his identity public, despite the potential consequences for himself and his loved ones. Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old employee of defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and former CIA technical assistant, said he had never intended to remain anonymous. “I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong,” he said.
