Kyle Kulinski | Edward Snowden FULLY vindicated in court ruling

Kyle Kulinski | Edward Snowden FULLY vindicated in court ruling

(10:22) Seven years after Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the mass surveillance of Americans' telephone records, an appeals cort has found the program to be unlawful, and that the US intelligence leaders who publicly defended it were not telling the truth.

Using your logic, if I assassinate Trump and say I did it for the public good, I should be able to get away with it, right?

Step one in the manual of corruption and dictatorship - punish (or eliminate) whistle-blowers, dissenters, and opposition.

Snowden is not a whistle-blower, he's a leaker.  The media is not within the hierarchy of tattling when you know of wrong doing.  Maybe his boss didn't do anything but you're supposed to go up the correct chain of command -- not go to the media.  That's what he did wrong, not that he brought it to light but did it the wrong way and to the wrong people.

Snowden is a whistleblower.  He recognised the ingrained corruption within the system and believed that the public had a right to know, and that releasing the information would force the powers that be to undergo long-deserved scrutiny.  He was correct on all counts.  Not a likeable man, but courageous and moral.

If I paid a mechanic to repair my car and instead he used the money to buy stinkbombs to throw at passersby, I think I'd be entitled to a full refund.  My taxes were misused even more egregiously:  I think a full refund is in order.

When I pay the mechanic, I don't ask what they plan on buying with the money as long as the car is repaired.  Usually in these repair cases, you pay after the service is rendered. Only some small mom and pop operations will ask you for money in advance and those are the ones I'd stay away from because it's possible you can hand over money and leave with a defective car because the mechanic didn't have the skill to finish the repair.  Your car is collaterial so if they complete the repair and you refuse to pay, they can hold your car.

When you go into walmart to buy a widget, do you ask the walmart cashier what they will use the money for?

When you pay a mechanic to fix your car, and he seems to do so but also spends some of your money on secretly installing a tracker in your bonnet that monitors your whereabouts (so he can make sure you're not driving on unsuitable roads), installing a black box (so he can check you're not driving dangerously), and making a list of your friends and family (to make sure you're not associating with anyone with driving convictions), you'd be happy with that, right?  After all, he 'fixed' your car and probably is making it 'safer' to drive.
