Questa è la risposta del governo Obama alla petizione su We The People presentata mesi fa sul destino di Edward Snowden. Traduco in un italiano veloce. Hanno la faccia come il culo (si dimenticano di dire che le recenti sbandierate riforme sono un effetto delle rivelazioni di Snowden). Qui un commento di Fabio Chiusi.

“Since taking office, President Obama has worked with Congress to secure appropriate reforms that balance the protection of civil liberties with the ability of national security professionals to secure information vital to keep Americans safe.

As the President said in announcing recent intelligence reforms, “We have to make some important decisions about how to protect ourselves and sustain our leadership in the world, while upholding the civil liberties and privacy protections that our ideals and our Constitution require.”

Instead of constructively addressing these issues, Mr. Snowden’s dangerous decision to steal and disclose classified information had severe consequences for the security of our country and the people who work day in and day out to protect it.

If he felt his actions were consistent with civil disobedience, then he should do what those who have taken issue with their own government do: Challenge it, speak out, engage in a constructive act of protest, and — importantly — accept the consequences of his actions. He should come home to the United States, and be judged by a jury of his peers — not hide behind the cover of an authoritarian regime. Right now, he’s running away from the consequences of his actions.

We live in a dangerous world. We continue to face grave security threats like terrorism, cyber-attacks, and nuclear proliferation that our intelligence community must have all the lawful tools it needs to address. The balance between our security and the civil liberties that our ideals and our Constitution require deserves robust debate and those who are willing to engage in it here at home.”

Un commento a “Obama delude tutti”

    La stessa faccia di “tolla” che hanno avuto alcuni capi di governo europei, lamentandosi di essere stati intercettati e spiati, ma guardandosi bene dall’ offrire asilo politico all’ uomo che ha svelato e documentato tutto ciò.
