Snowden Honored by Ex-Intel Officials
July 8, 2013

__

Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence, an organization of former national security officials, has honored NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, praising his decision to reveal the extent of U.S. government electronic surveillance of people in the United States and around the world.

Edward Snowden, an ex-contractor for the National Security Agency, has been named recipient of this year’s award for truth-telling given by Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence, the group announced Monday.

Most of the Sam Adams Associates are former senior national security officials who, with the other members, understand fully the need to keep legitimate secrets. Each of the U.S. members took a solemn oath “to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

When secrecy is misused to hide unconstitutional activities, fealty to that oath – and higher duty as citizens of conscience – dictate support for truth-tellers who summon the courage to blow the whistle. Edward Snowden’s disclosures fit the classic definition of whistle-blowing.

  1. “Research this subject and write or call Congress with your opinion, we need your opinion!”

    I’m glad to hear you say this. I’m planning to call my Congressmen about NSA spying this Friday, as part of a mass-calling effort organized by these guys:

    I hope you’ll check them out. If you want to resist what the NSA is doing, Restore The Fourth is the group to do it.

  2. I definitely will thanks for the info!
