It’s great we as Americans propose accountability and transparency as virtues and yet prosecute people who stand up for what they perceive as right?
So not only as an American citizen we should live in fear of terrorists but also of what our government will do to us if we try to hold it up to it’s own ideals.

Is this really true? Why not just let inconsistency in media reports create uncertainty and ambiguity — isn’t that their objective?

Legal for all to know and trade in except for US citizens. Look that the IRS etc. What a pathetic scam the US government has become.

How long would it take for the powers-that-be to discern that someone was getting ready to blow the whistle (or leak what most already know anyway) if that person was out soliciting support before doing so?

Get real.

Or, to put it differently, that the government considers the public to be their enemy. I thought that the Supreme Court ruled on that during the Pentagon Papers business, but perhaps I am wrong.

Clearly anyone who thinks they can trust their government, isn’t listening to the things the government itself is saying lately.
