When someone asks me if Snowden is a hero or a traitor, my answer is a resounding, “YES!” With this article, I hope to prove the hero side of that argument. This article was shared by a fellow patriot who I’ll call “BoBo The Clown” to protect his identity from the NSA & IRS (the financial arm of the NSA). <grin>
As I was telling “BoBo”, I had long had a theory that China had been modifying consumer electronics from Lenovo and other Chinese companies, although I didn’t have any way of proving it. I buy a lot of things from Amazon: if they allow this to happen, I will not only stop buying things from them, I’ll prevent our business from purchasing from them as well.
GRAIN OF SALT: The article originates from the German newspaper, Der Spiegel, which isn’t always 100% accurate. In a lot of respects, they are not unlike our NY Times: They color stories when they have an agenda to satisfy…and the Deutschers ARE a bit pissed about the NSA spying on them.
