    I am surprised when I read comments. All countries spy their citizens! I don’t fuckin understand how you can be so stupid and naive in America?! Snowden didn't say anything new. You can never do anything privately in the Internet. Grow up finally!

          Who would've ever thought that someone would have to flee America and seek refuge in Russia from persecution of "U.S. secret police"

            I think he would be more of a hero if he stayed in the US but decided to be smart and run. Didnt believe he had people on his side for support.

              I think he's a hero. The Man gave his life to speak out on things he felt were wrong. He knew what the result would be but he still did what he felt was right. Not many people would do that. He is very intelligent, I hope one day he can come home.

                        Bullshit !! Edward Snowden and all hiz zealots like to claim that mass surveilance was unknown to the general public prior to 2013; but AT&T was outed multipel times all the way back to 2006-2007-2010. People just didn't give a damn until the media grabbed hold of Snwoden and made him a poster boy for the situation.

                              “So many vows... they make you swear and swear. Defend the king. Obey the king. Keep his secrets. Do his bidding. Your life for his. But obey your father. Love your sister. Protect the innocent. Defend the weak. Respect the gods. Obey the laws. It’s too much. No matter what you do, you’re forsaking one vow or the other.”

                                "You're in a good spirits, which is interesting for someone who's been in Russia for this long" - what the fuck was that? If I say to someone: "Hey, you live in NY black ghetto, and you'r in good spirits, and it's interesting for someone who's been in black ghetto for this long" - this would be racist. But if you talk about 150 mil nation - it's OK. That's what I call true democracy and freedom of speech.

                                Well, fuck you Trevor. I live in Russia all my life and feel great! And I love my country, so fuck you twice!

                                  Russia: Oh my god! How you live there?! It's so terrible country, where everyone doesn't care about human rights!

                                      This interview is scaring me. I know he didn't mean to but I am rethinking everything from work cameras to personal phones. This will make my daily life anxious but I am grateful for the heads up.

                                            It’s weird how Snowden became a traitor to the government. And he has to run. But the whistle blower going after Trump. (The government) Is being protected. What’s the difference?
                                            Don’t come back till the Clinton like politicians are gone. We don’t need another fake suicide.

                                              The part where some random strangers can look at your nudes on your phone is so disgusting. Thats why I have never taken one and never will. The government is violating our personal human rights 1million%.

                                                  Wow, it's almost like he's telling the truth, so far i've seen his JRE account, MSNBC account, and thus far this one.
                                                  Draws parallels to Bob Lazar and his accounts.... It's almost like the Government is to efficient and to paranoid, secretive, compartmentalized, corrupt, MAD, mis-guided....

Any person who has been trained to deal with sensitive/classified materials for the US government knows exactly how you do it and what happens to you if you do it incorrectly. Just shows how really sick his brain is...Asperger's Syndrome.
