Snowden told the Parliament that the individuals to whom he reported his concerns fell into two camps: Some individuals agreed that the surveillance was wrong, but urged the former CIA employee not to make trouble, or he could face prosecution and professional retribution like other whistleblowers before him.
“Everyone in the Intelligence Community is aware of what happens to people who report concerns about unlawful but authorized operations,” he said.
The article says Snowden went to people within the NSA 10 times with his concerns.
So much for what California fascist senator Feinstein has said about how he should have worked within the system and it would have responded to his concerns.
Just 19 percent of millennials say that people can be trusted, a much lower number than the other three generations.

@@@ Doomriders: Grand Blood (Deathwish, 2013). Off the CFUV weekly email, and the first tune is a blend of post-rock, punk, and metal. The singer is pissed as you would expect but he’s intelligible. The record starts heating up with the fourth tune, Grand Blood, which is the title track — a tasty shuffle beat and some righteous rolling guitar distortion. We’re actually seeing some white boy swinging in the fifth tune, Bad Vibes. I like this record a bit less than a couple of other Deathwish releases I checked out last year.
We’re closer to the spirit of 1984 than we are the spirit of 1776.
DAMASCUS – After three years of grinding conflict, the destruction of whole city districts and an exodus of refugees all triggered by an uprising against his rule, Bashar al-Assad is quietly preparing to be re-elected.
