IPT is The Investigative Project on Terrorism, "a non-profit research group founded by Steven Emerson in 1995. It is recognized as the world's most comprehensive data center on radical Islamic terrorist groups."

"Steve Emerson knows what he's talking about with terrorism." Chris Matthews, Hardball

"Steven Emerson's Investigative Project on Terrorism, a not-for-profit research group, repeatedly told me things about terrorists on the web and terrorists in the United States that neither the CIA nor the FBI knew. Often he was right." Richard A. Clarke in Your Government Failed You

A little research (which obviously was not done) would show a somewhat different picture of the individual. But, then, Minni has never been too precise on facts.

Yes, because "killing the messenger" is a totally legitimate and valid method by which one should deal with bad or uncomfortable news.

The problem with spying on Americans is that this is just another freedom that is slowly being taken away. Whether it be Obama or Bush, each president has slowly taken away the right of Americans in the name of "Terror".

The main argument is that "I have nothing to hide so why does it matter?"

It matters because by the time you realize the freedoms you have are gone, you have no way of taking it back. Soon you will become the USSR, China America goes into countries saying "People deserve Freedom" Yet the USA is taking away everything Soldiers fought for.

Sounds hypocritical.

Let us look at this. The US gov is guilty of spying on Americans and the truth wills out, speaks to power, and the messenger is about to get shot. So cool.

Is it better to protect the person who found wrong doing and told all about it or just kept his mouth shut and let the criminality continue?

Get a clue here.

Let me see: A guy goes and gets a job with a company that has access to "secret" materials from the US. His purpose was to access that information and release classified material deemed secret that may compromise US security. Hmmm, he is a hero? Really!! So, should we bring back Julius and Ethel Rosenberg and clarify if they were whistleblowers. So, do you experts believe that the country is more at risk for terrorist attacks because of his behavior or less at risk? Now he is trying to hide with countries considered to be at odds with the US. Not a hero but a traitor.

If China, Russia and Cuba are willing to harbor him, he is not innocent. He has knowledge that they want and he is obviously willing to give. Try and go to any of those countries without a passport and see what happens to you.

He is America's Alexander Solzhenitsyn.

Back in the old days, the Soviet Union would have problems with dissidents, today, the US gov does.

Welcome to the USSA.

The more things change the more the stay the same.
