NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden Indicted on Espionage Charges

Episode 989 (01:27)

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden was indicted this week on espionage charges, but there's a petition of over 100,000 at the White House website requesting that the President pardon him. Leo says he should because he's done the nation a great service without endangering anyone, unlike Bradley Manning, who put US spies in jeopardy.

ComputerWorld has published an article on how to create your own NSA-like spying program using Google Services like Google Alerts. If This, Then That is another great option.

Leo says that those who use encryption like PGP or Torr are automatically having all their data mined by the Feds. Leo says that all this big brother activity, including the fact that the regime has prosecuted more Americans under the 1917 Espionage Act than all other presidents before it, is down right un-American.
