Edward Snowden says "Mission Accomplished": have an off-line Christmas and a paranoid New Year .

Just before I powered down for my own off-line Christmas I received the headlines from the Washington Post and clicked through to what is perhaps the best, and also the most worrying, article on the Snowden affair that I have yet read.

It is written by the man to whom he supposedly gave first refusal on what he had to offer and begins with Edward Snowden’s statement that he has acheived his objective.

Do read and ponder – I think it is a well balanced article – with good juxtapositions, bringing out the arguments on all sides.

I would only add that I too knew how to set the world to rights when I was 29.

Perhaps you did too. 

Thinking back ……
