Some of Edward Snowden’s detractors criticized the NSA whistleblower for fleeing into exile, rather than facing trial for disclosing the agency’s illegal activities. One persistent theme in such criticism is that Snowden should have worked through established channels, rather than going public.
Several previous NSA whistleblowers had attempted to do so, and were either ignored or threatened with prosecution. There was no institutional recourse in a system that punishes whistleblowers and rewards criminals. And since the government that employed him engages in summary execution of US citizens the president designates as official enemies, Snowden is wise to put himself beyond its immediate reach.
Several Pentagon and intelligence officials interview by the Buzzfeed website clearly lust to murder Snowden. One of them described a scenario in which Snowden could be “casually poked by a passerby” on the streets of Moscow, and die several hours later as a result of being poisoned.
That was the method used by the KGB and Bulgarian intelligence to murder exiled anti-Communist dissident Georgi Markov on a bridge in London in 1978.
In what must be considered a painful historic irony, Edward Snowden fled to Russia because the political elites in Washington are the true heirs to the Soviets.
