Not since the days of the USSR and of course Stasi in East Germany , has a ‘security’ service spied on people as much as Obama’s creation. Not just Obama’s subjects in the former USA but everyone everywhere. Never has anyone gathered so much information on ordinary people as has Obama. Good luck to Mr. Snowden and may he survive until his efforts can be celebrated by freedom loving people everywhere. Some of the Irish media have barely acknowledged his release into Russia.
