I have just watched the Edward Snowden interview on NBC news. Despite the number of advert-breaks, it was interesting. There is a vast amount of detail which is not being made available to the general-public. If Edward was to return to his country, I have my doubts to the fairness of the trial he would get.
There needs to be increased governance applied to how intelligence / information is gathered.
At the other end of the spectrum, eBay gets hacked, and we are all told to change our passwords. This is such a Daily Mail view of the world sigh. There needs to be more of a “we are coming after you, and tell people what’s happening” message. Some of us want to prevent information theft.
Time to let Edward Snowden go home, get a fair-crack at proving his innocence (which will hopefully kick-start pragmatic-changes to information collection). Edward would appear to be innocent, and if so, feel free to drop by, you can have a cuppa anytime :O)
