Media Mulls the Gov't Drone Striking NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden

(Truthstream Media.com)

Yes, things have come this far. There is open talk of killing NSA leaker Edward Snowden via a drone strike.

Remember that saying “Don’t kill the messenger?” This is the ultimate form of doing just that.

There is open talk in the media of killing National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden via a drone strike. The online version of the magazine Popular Science had point and counterpoint articles debating all the reasons why the U.S. government might or might not consider drone striking Snowden in Hong Kong, the city he ran to fearing federal retribution for leaking information regarding the NSA’s PRISM program, a vast spying operation that has been turned against the American people at large at the expense of their constitutional rights.

Truthstream Media reporters Melissa Melton and Aaron Dykes discuss this apathetic acceptance of government assassination of American citizens:

To drone strike somebody, you have to have at least a vague idea where they are. If they knew that, FAR easier to just grab him. Somehow popping off a Hellfire or two in downtown HK doesn't sound to me like a wise move for the US federal government. And good luck waltzing an unauthorized "weapons hot" US aircraft into Chinese airspace. Yeah,  seems legit. The US could totally kill him alright!

I dont think that would be a very wise decision on whoever should make it.They are walking on very thin ice with China anyway,so with what they are saying if I were the Chinese,I would just keep him.

On to Moscow.  Too much political pressure from US Govt on China.   Putin will be glad to put him up and perhaps learn more of the US espionage (NSA) secrets that Snowden has to offer.   Snowden has pissed off the big war machine and theyre after him.  Watch your back Edward, there are CIA operatives everywhere....

Here's the thing that puzzles me. The classic method of "insurance" in situations like this, is to leave information with a trusted party, such as a lawyer on retainer, in the event of your "untimely" demise, or on the occurrence of any specified event, to be released to the media.

The modern version of this paradigm is a countdown script and some crypto libraries on a linux box/website you control. Unless you continually re-set the script, the info gets posted/tweeted/emailed/ftp'd out. This guy is an IT guy, for heaven's sake. Any sensible IT guy, especially one who works in intelligence and crypto, knows about this kind of fieldcraft. It's their bread and butter! 

Of course, you have to tell the person/persons you expect to be trying to kill or catch you, or it's not very good insurance.

So, assuming Snowden is on the level, i.e. he's not just an elaborate limited hangout mechanism to hide a bigger elephant, then why isn't he doing this? And as Russ Tice asked on Sibel's program, why HK? Almost anywhere makes more sense than that. Maybe he couldn't get a flight?

Logistically, politically & legally a stupid idea. This is just talk to acclimate the zombies to the idea of drone bombing dissenters. Hopefully it backfires and wakes up some of the zombies.

Yeah I think al queda is renting out that spider hole Saddam Hussein was found in by us troops. I'm sure a lease hasn't been secured as of yet but once he clears his background check snow den has the green light to send for his super hero stripper girlfriend. Records show he has purchased his storable food, water filter and info wars magazine will all be forwarded to spider hole Iraq.
