    Greenwald: Snowden has enough information to cause US govt ‘worst damage in history’



    He has a huge number of documents that would be very harmful to the US government if they were made public,” Greenwald said. He added that Washington should be exercising care in dealing with the Snowden because he has the potential to do further damage to the US. “The US government should be on its knees every day begging that nothing happen to Snowden, because if something does happen to him, all the information will be revealed and it could be its worst nightmare,” he said. Greenwald said that “the most important thing [for Snowden] is not to end up in US custody,” describing the government's approach to people who reveal uncomfortable truths as “vindictive.” When asked whether he believed that someone would attempt to harm or kill the whistleblower, he said that Snowden has “already distributed thousands of documents and made sure that several people around the world have their entire file,” stating that it would be beneficial for anyone to attempt assassination. He added that the US should be praying that no one would attempt to take Snowden's life. “If something happens, all the information will be revealed, and that would be [America's] worst nightmare,” he said.

    I think a distinction needs to be made between America (the people), American gov't, and individuals in that gov't.

    Personally, while wishing Snowden no harm, it would be the best thing that could happen for the American people and the people in other countries that have been systematically victimized by US meddling in their economies, leadership and resources in the name of "American Interests" (ie: business)

    btw, you know that RT is Russian Television... right?

    I totally agree with you. The American people are not the same that is the U.S. government. The American people is the first victim of the U.S. government and greedy corporations. I'm sorry that the freedom-loving American people make a docile mass. (Of course I know. RT-Russia Today)

    --------------

    If Snowden has already given the info to "several people around the world", that info WILL become public at some point.
    Wikileaks will blab, people will shrug and go on with their lives.
    Sunshine is the best disinfectant.
    Let's see the dirt and wonder how a low level schmuck like Snowden gained access to such "nightmarish" info.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Well, he WAS running against Al Gore.................
    MY point is, I think Snowden's bombshell info has been and will be a dud.
    The US Gov't spies on everyone and is less than noble in it's dealings?
    This is a surprise?

    I think the for U.S. government created only the loss of reputation. Which is already there. United States, which teaches all of democracy, actually turned out to be a fascist state. With a total surveillance for all.

    Are you saying you have no objections to your government breaking the laws that restrain it?

    I think he is saying that most Americans won't have objections. Hell, look at some of the things Obama and before him, other presidents, have done and they still got re-elected. Some of us will care, but the average Joe/Jane on the street, I don't think so. Even when many of them "show" that they care, it is mainly when the Government is run by the opposite party of their choice. Less than 60% even bothered to vote at all in 2012.

    Of the people, for the people, by the people and the people have voted that they don't care, just send me my check.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.
